Features and Benefits
Current-Mode Logic is one of the most convenient protocols for high-speed interfacing and is quickly becoming the protocol of choice for emerging, high bandwidth, networking applications. The NBSG16M simplifies initial conditions and connection termination with on-chip 50 ohm ohm (ōm) [for G. S. Ohm], unit of electrical resistance, defined as the resistance in a circuit in which a potential difference of one volt creates a current of one ampere; hence, 1 ohm equals 1 volt/ampere. input and output termination. Like Reduced Swing ECL (Emitter-Coupled Logic) A digital circuit composed of bipolar transistors in which the emitter ends are wired together. ECL gates switch faster than TTL gates, but consume more power. See TTL, I2L and bipolar.

one-thousandth of a volt; abbreviated mV. (mV) signal swing of CML results in reduced power consumption. The irregularities that result from back reflection of signals later in the circuit -- which is common to high-frequency signaling -- are minimized by the on-chip termination.
Capable of data rates above 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps), the NBSG16M is the industry's fastest CML receiver/driver and ideal for high-performance applications in OC-192 applications. High-speed backplane interfacing is simplified with propagation delay below 150 ps and rise and fall times below 53 ps. Combined with the design flexibility inherent in CML, the performance capability of the NBSG16M results in an optimum solution for data transmission in networking applications.
Like all members of the GigaComm(TM) family, this device features ON Semiconductor's AnyLevel(TM) technology that includes 50 ohms input termination resistors and accepts all major signaling standards -- specifically Negative ECL (LVNECL), PECL, LVCMOS/LVTTL, CML or LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) A transmission method for sending digital information. LVDS sends data over data high and data low lines rather than data and ground. .
Packaging and Price
The NBSG16M is packaged in the 3 mm by 3 mm 16-pin Quad Flat No-lead (QFN QFN Quad Flat No-Lead
QFN Queen Fan Newsletter (rock band)
QFN Quad Flat No Leads ) -- offering a minimum impact to board space and industrial-grade temperature tolerance (-40(degree) C to +85(degree) C). It is priced at $20 per unit in 10,000-unit quantities.
