Hi,The Cyclone IV handbook states that the top and bottom I/O banks used emulated LVDS transmitters, but I'm not seeing any comments on LVDS receivers. There is also an illustration showing the emulated transmitter but nothing on the receivers. Are the top and bottom LVDS receivers emulated as well? Is there any functional difference between the different banks' LVDS receivers? Thanks, Tobyn
LVDS receivers use differential input stages which are available at all dedicated DIFFIO and DIFFCLK pin pairs. There's no thing like an "emulated LVDS receiver".
There's no difference between the different bank's LVDS receivers - none are identified as 'emulated' - although, in practice, all of them are. Just terminate with 100R as per the handbook.Cheers, Alex
