The "Low Power, Low Voltage, Digitally Trim-able Active Back-termination LVDS driver" is a Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS), low noise, low power, low amplitude circuit for high-speed (gigabits per second) data transmission.
It is not the same pinout as Low Voltage Differential or single ended--a ground is shifted to the outside of the connector.
Specifications include dual 100MB/sec Fibre Channel host interfaces, two 80MB/sec Ultra2 Low Voltage Differential (LVD) SCSI disk interfaces, support for up to 28 disk drives, and up to 1GB of cache.
5 pattern at Low Voltage Differential Signal (LVDS) or Emitter Coupled Logic (ECL) levels.
Q: Is it possible for Low Voltage Differential (LVD) SCSI drives to be used on the same bus as Single Ended (SE) Ultra SCSI drives?
Low Voltage Differential Interface (LVDI), which distinguishes signals by the difference of voltage of the two wires, lowers Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) as well as reducing the power consumption.
Low Voltage Differential SCSI (LVD) is the answer to both problems associated with the physical SCSI interface.
