[SI-LIST] Re: R: LVDS Transmission Problem

Cable loss is certainly not the problem here. Plain old LVDS signaling can be 
used with 
24 gauge twisted-pair cables even longer than 150 meters! One can refer to the 
cable 
guidelines in the LVDS standard page 25 (http://ftp.tiaonline.org/tr-
30/tr302/Public/2000%20Contributions/20005017.pdf)

I think the problem here could be with the data pattern, data rate, or the type 
of 
connection. Relevant questions to consider:

- Is it a dc or ac-coupled link? 
- Does the failing data pattern have long runs of zero's and one's that 
considerably 
alter the dc balance of the signal? More so if ac-coupled.
- Is 34MHz below the low frequency limit of the LVDS receiver/driver?

Best regards.

Hassan.
