The DS91C176 and DS91D176 are 100 MHz single channel M-LVDS (Multipoint Low Voltage
Differential Signaling) transceivers designed for applications that utilize multipoint networks
(e.g. clock distribution in ATCA and uTCA based systems). M-LVDS is a new bus interface standard
(TIA/EIA-899) optimized for multidrop networks. Controlled edge rates, tight input receiver
thresholds and increased drive strength are sone of the key enhancements that make M-LVDS devices
an ideal choice for distributing signals via multipoint networks.
The DS91C176/DS91D176 are half-duplex transceivers that accept LVTTL/LVCMOS signals at
the driver inputs and convert them to differential M-LVDS signals. The receiver inputs accept low
voltage differential signals (LVDS, B-LVDS, M-LVDS, LV-PECL and CML) and convert them to 3V LVCMOS
signals. The DS91D176 has a M-LVDS type 1 receiver input with no offset. The DS91C176 has an M-LVDS
type 2 receiver which enable failsafe functionality.
