DS50PCI401: Regarding input / output specifications

Part Number: DS50PCI401

Hello TI team

I would like to know if this IC can be used for SLVS-MI signal lines.

According to the data sheet, it can be received the differential signal if the peak to peak is 0.1V or higher. Is this correct?

And is it possible to meet the SLVS specifications (CM voltage 200 mV, differential voltage 400 mVp-p) as an output signal?


  • Greetings,

    1). Correct device minimum differential input peak to peak level is 100mV.

    2). This part has positive CML referenced input - referenced to the positive VDD supply. With minimum input sensitivity of differential 100mV, it means a single ended input has 50mV peak to peak and it is referenced to VDD. How about if you AC couple instead? This way we are isolating positive CML input from your SLVS 200mV common mode voltage.
