    lvds cmfb

    Hi all!

    In my LVDS driver design used common mode feedback. When I modeling simple model which include LVDS driver and 100 Ohm termination amplitude-frequency characteristic of CMFB is good: gain is about 75 dB and phase margin is about 80 deg.

    But when I modeling it with more complex model which include also package inductance, package capacitance, transmission lines etc. amplitude-frequency characteristic become bad: phase margin is about 20 deg.

    Question: what model shall i use? Can i neglect package inductance, package capacitance, transmission lines etc.?

    lvds commond mode usage

    It's no good idea to ignore reality, I think.

    common mode feedback

    More exact: problem cause only when i use model with transmission line.

    Model with all reality elements (parasitic and package capacitances, inductance etc) and without tline has good amplitude-frequency characteristic of CMFB. When I include tline it become bad.

    And I don't know what to do. I try to adjust frequency correction circuit, adjust CMFB circuit - without result.

    And now I think have I a right to neglect tline in my model when I simulate amplitude-frequency characteristic of CMFB?

    lvds common mode

    I don't know, how your simulation scircuit exactly looks like. It may be the case, that your transmission line model is simply incorrect. You can't model a differential transmission line with a single a TL instance. It would cause infinite common mode load impedance. Define differential and common mode transmission line impedances and use an appropriate model.
