Differential LVPECL-to-LVDS Translators

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX9374 and MAX9374A are 2.0GHz differential LVPECL-to-LVDS translators and are designed for telecom applications. They feature 250ps propagation delay. The differential output conforms to the ANSI TIA/EIA-644 LVDS standard. The inputs are biased with internal resistors such that the output is differential low when inputs are open. An on-chip VBB reference output is available for single-ended operation.

The MAX9374 is designed for low-voltage operation from a 2.375V to 2.625V power supply for use in 2.5V systems. The MAX9374A is designed for 3.0V to 3.6V operation in systems with a nominal 3.3V supply. Both devices are offered in industry-standard 8-pin SOT23 and SO packages.
