DS90LV048A 3V LVDS Quad CMOS Differential Line Receiver General Description Features The DS90LV048A is a quad CMOS flow-through differential line receiver designed for applications requiring ultra low power dissipation and high data rates. The device is designed to support data rates in excess of 400 Mbps (200 MHz) utilizing Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) technology. The DS90LV048A accepts low voltage (350 mV typical) differential input signals and translates them to 3V CMOS output levels. The receiver supports a TRI-STATE ® function that may be used to multiplex outputs. The receiver also supports open, shorted and terminated (100Ω) input fail-safe. The receiver output will be HIGH for all fail-safe conditions. The DS90LV048A has a flow-through pinout for easy PCB layout. The EN and EN* inputs are ANDed together and control the TRI-STATE outputs. The enables are common to all four receivers. The DS90LV048A and companion LVDS line driver (eg. DS90LV047A) provide a new alternative to high power PECL/ECL devices for high speed point-to-point interface applications. n n n n n n n n n n Connection Diagram Functional Diagram n n n n > 400 Mbps (200 MHz) switching rates Flow-through pinout simplifies PCB layout 150 ps channel-to-channel skew (typical) 100 ps differential skew (typical) 2.7 ns maximum propagation delay 3.3V power supply design High impedance LVDS inputs on power down Low Power design (40mW 3.3V static) Interoperable with existing 5V LVDS drivers Accepts small swing (350 mV typical) differential signal levels Supports open, short and terminated input fail-safe Conforms to ANSI/TIA/EIA-644 Standard Industrial temperature operating range (-40˚C to +85˚C) Available in SOIC and TSSOP package Dual-in-Line DS100888-1 Order Number DS90LV048ATM, DS90LV048ATMTC See NS Package Number M16A, MTC16 DS100888-2 INPUTS OUTPUT EN ENABLES EN* RIN+ − RIN− ROUT H L or Open VID ≥ 0.1V H All other combinations of ENABLE inputs VID ≤ −0.1V L Full Fail-safe OPEN/SHORT or Terminated H X Z TRI-STATE ® is a registered trademark of National Semiconductor Corporation. © 1999 National Semiconductor Corporation DS100888 www.national.com DS90LV048A 3V LVDS Quad CMOS Differential Line Receiver July 1999 Absolute Maximum Ratings (Note 1) (4 sec.)

Receiver TRI-STATE Delay Waveforms Typical Application Balanced System DS100888-7 FIGURE 5. Point-to-Point Application Applications Information the media is in the range of 100Ω. A termination resistor of 100Ω (selected to match the media), and is located as close to the receiver input pins as possible. The termination resistor converts the driver output (current mode) into a voltage that is detected by the receiver. Other configurations are possible such as a multi-receiver configuration, but the effects of a mid-stream connector(s), cable stub(s), and other impedance discontinuities as well as ground shifting, noise margin limits, and total termination loading must be taken into account. General application guidelines and hints for LVDS drivers and receivers may be found in the following application notes: LVDS Owner’s Manual (lit #550062-001), AN808, AN977, AN971, AN916, AN805, AN903. LVDS drivers and receivers are intended to be primarily used in an uncomplicated point-to-point configuration as is shown in Figure 5. This configuration provides a clean signaling environment for the fast edge rates of the drivers. The receiver is connected to the driver through a balanced media which may be a standard twisted pair cable, a parallel pair cable, or simply PCB traces. Typically, the characteristic impedance of www.national.com 4 Applications Information fully review dimensions to match differential impedance and provide isolation for the differential lines. Minimize the number or vias and other discontinuities on the line. (Continued) The DS90LV048A differential line receiver is capable of detecting signals as low as 100mV, over a ± 1V common-mode range centered around +1.2V. This is related to the driver offset voltage which is typically +1.2V. The driven signal is centered around this voltage and may shift ± 1V around this center point. The ± 1V shifting may be the result of a ground potential difference between the driver’s ground reference and the receiver’s ground reference, the common-mode effects of coupled noise, or a combination of the two. The AC parameters of both receiver input pins are optimized for a recommended operating input voltage range of 0V to +2.4V (measured from each pin to ground). The device will operate for receiver input voltages up to VCC, but exceeding VCC will turn on the ESD protection circuitry which will clamp the bus voltages. Avoid 90˚ turns (these cause impedance discontinuities). Use arcs or 45˚ bevels. Within a pair of traces, the distance between the two traces should be minimized to maintain common-mode rejection of the receivers. On the printed circuit board, this distance should remain constant to avoid discontinuities in differential impedance. Minor violations at connection points are allowable. Termination: Use a termination resistor which best matches the differential impedance or your transmission line. The resistor should be between 90Ω and 130Ω. Remember that the current mode outputs need the termination resistor to generate the differential voltage. LVDS will not work without resistor termination. Typically, connecting a single resistor across the pair at the receiver end will suffice. Surface mount 1% to 2% resistors are best. PCB stubs, component lead, and the distance from the termination to the receiver inputs should be minimized. The distance between the termination resistor and the receiver should be < 10mm (12mm MAX) Probing LVDS Transmission Lines: Always use high impedance ( > 100kΩ), low capacitance ( < 2 pF) scope probes with a wide bandwidth (1 GHz) scope. Improper probing will give deceiving results. Cables and Connectors, General Comments: When choosing cable and connectors for LVDS it is important to remember: Use controlled impedance media. The cables and connectors you use should have a matched differential impedance of about 100Ω. They should not introduce major impedance discontinuities. Balanced cables (e.g. twisted pair) are usually better than unbalanced cables (ribbon cable, simple coax.) for noise reduction and signal quality. Balanced cables tend to generate less EMI due to field canceling effects and also tend to pick up electromagnetic radiation a common-mode (not differential mode) noise which is rejected by the receiver. For cable distances < 0.5M, most cables can be made to work effectively. For distances 0.5M ≤ d ≤ 10M, CAT 3 (category 3) twisted pair cable works well, is readily available and relatively inexpensive. Fail-Safe Feature: The LVDS receiver is a high gain, high speed device that amplifies a small differential signal (20mV) to CMOS logic levels. Due to the high gain and tight threshold of the receiver, care should be taken to prevent noise from appearing as a valid signal. The receiver’s internal fail-safe circuitry is designed to source/sink a small amount of current, providing fail-safe protection (a stable known state of HIGH output voltage) for floating, terminated or shorted receiver inputs. 1. Open Input Pins. The DS90LV048A is a quad receiver device, and if an application requires only 1, 2 or 3 receivers, the unused channel(s) inputs should be left OPEN. Do not tie unused receiver inputs to ground or any other voltages. The input is biased by internal high value pull up and pull down resistors to set the output to a HIGH state. This internal circuitry will guarantee a HIGH, stable output state for open inputs. The DS90LV048A has a flow-through pinout that allows for easy PCB layout. The LVDS signals on one side of the device easily allows for matching electrical lengths of the differential pair trace lines between the driver and the receiver as well as allowing the trace lines to be close together to couple noise as common-mode. Noise isolation is achieved with the LVDS signals on one side of the device and the TTL signals on the other side. Power Decoupling Recommendations: Bypass capacitors must be used on power pins. Use high frequency ceramic (surface mount is recommended) 0.1µF and 0.001µF capacitors in parallel at the power supply pin with the smallest value capacitor closest to the device supply pin. Additional scattered capacitors over the printed circuit board will improve decoupling. Multiple vias should be used to connect the decoupling capacitors to the power planes. A 10µF (35V) or greater solid tantalum capacitor should be connected at the power entry point on the printed circuit board between the supply and ground. PC Board considerations: Use at least 4 PCB layers (top to bottom); LVDS signals, ground, power, TTL signals. Isolate TTL signals from LVDS signals, otherwise the TTL may couple onto the LVDS lines. It is best to put TTL and LVDS signals on different layers which are isolated by a power/ground plane(s) Keep drivers and receivers as close to the (LVDS port side) connectors as possible. Differential Traces: Use controlled impedance traces which match the differential impedance of your transmission medium (ie. cable) and termination resistor. Run the differential pair trace lines as close together as possible as soon as they leave the IC (stubs should be < 10mm long). This will help eliminate reflections and ensure noise is coupled as common-mode. In fact, we have seen that differential signals which are 1mm apart radiate far less noise than traces 3mm apart since magnetic field cancellation is much better with the closer traces. In addition, noise induced on the differential lines is much more likely to appear as common-mode which is rejected by the receiver. Match electrical lengths between traces to reduce skew. Skew between the signals of a pair means a phase difference between signals which destroys the magnetic field cancellation benefits of differential signals and EMI will result. (Note the velocity of propagation, v = c/Er where c (the speed of light) = 0.2997mm/ps or 0.0118 in/ps). Do not rely solely on the autoroute function for differential traces. Care5 www.national.com Applications Information Pin Descriptions (Continued) 2. Terminated Input. If the driver is disconnected (cable unplugged), or if the driver is in a TRI-STATE or poweroff condition, the receiver output will again be in a HIGH state, even with the end of cable 100Ω termination resistor across the input pins. The unplugged cable can become a floating antenna which can pick up noise. If the cable picks up more than 10mV of differential noise, the receiver may see the noise as a valid signal and switch. To insure that any noise is seen as common-mode and not differential, a balanced interconnect should be used. Twisted pair cable will offer better balance than flat ribbon cable. 3. Shorted Inputs. If a fault condition occurs that shorts the receiver inputs together, thus resulting in a 0V differential input voltage, the receiver output will remain in a HIGH state. Shorted input fail-safe is not supported across the common-mode range of the device (GND to 2.4V). It is only supported with inputs shorted and no external common-mode voltage applied. External lower value pull up and pull down resistors (for a stronger bias) may be used to boost fail-safe in the presence of higher noise levels. The pull up and pull down resistors should be in the 5kΩ to 15kΩ range to minimize loading and waveform distortion to the driver. The common-mode bias point should be set to approximately 1.2V (less than 1.75V) to be compatible with the internal circuitry.
