TSB41BA3-EP TI 1394 chip was miswired such that the TPA_P and TPA_N were swapped in cabling. Everything works fine. I can find no documentation in either the 1394 spec or in the TI spec that would allow this. Is there a problem with this miswiring?
Thanks, in advance.
No issues exist with swapping +/- on the differential pair.
Thanks, where is this documented?
This is not documented as the signals are expected to be matching as labeled. Typically, differential signals +/- channels can be swapped, but there are some cases where this may cause issues particularly in testing.
