The SN65LVDS047 is a quad differential line driver that implements the electrical characteristics
of low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS). This signaling technique lowers the output voltage
levels of 5-V differential standard levels (such as EIA/TIA-422B) to reduce the power, increase the
switching speeds, and allow operation with a 3.3-V supply rail. Any of the four current-mode
drivers will deliver a minimum differential output voltage magnitude of 247 mV into a 100- load
The intended application of this device and signaling technique is for point-to-point and multi-drop
baseband data transmission over controlled impedance media of approximately 100 . The transmission media may be printed-circuit board traces,
backplanes, or cables. The ultimate rate and distance of data transfer is dependent upon the attenuation
characteristics of the media, the noise coupling to the environment, and other system characteristics.
The SN65LVDS047 is characterized for operation from -40°C to 85°C.
