3.3V / 5V ECL Differential
Receiver/Driver with High
The EP16VA is a world−class differential receiver/driver. The
device is functionally equivalent to the EP16 and LVEP16 devices but
with high gain output. QHG and QHG outputs have a DC gain several
times larger than the DC gain of an EP16.
The VBB pin, an internally generated voltage supply, is available to
this device only. For single-ended input conditions, the unused
differential input is connected to VBB as a switching reference voltage.
VBB may also rebias AC coupled inputs. When used, decouple VBB
and VCC via a 0.01 mF capacitor and limit current sourcing or sinking
to 0.5 mA. When not used, VBB should be left open.
Under open input conditions (pulled to VEE) internal input clamps
will force the QHG output LOW.
Special considerations are required for differential inputs under No
Signal conditions to prevent instability.
The 100 Series contains temperature compensation.
