Product Description

The PI90LV047A is a quad flow-through differential line driver designed for applications requiring ultra-low power dissipation and high data rates. This device is designed to support data rates in excess of 400 Mbps (200 MHz) using Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) technology.

The PI90LV047A accept low-voltage TTL/CMOS input levels and translates them to low-voltage (350 mV) differential output signals.

In addition, the driver supports a 3-state function that may be used to disable the output stage, disabling the load current, and thus dropping the device to an ultra low idle power state of 13mW typical. This device has a flow-through pinout for easy PCB layout.

The EN and EN inputs are banded together and control the 3-state outputs.

The intended application of this device and signaling technique is for point-to-point baseband (PI90LV047A) data transmission over controlled impedance media.
