Integrated clamp Schottky diode network is a low power and low noise solution for reducing reflections on high speed data lines. Reflection on high speed data lines leads to undershoot and overshoot disturbances which may result in improper system operation. Resistor terminations used in parallel or in series with the outputs, when used to terminate high speed data lines, can increase power consumption, degrade the high level output and lower noise immunity or increase propagation delays. Schottky diode termination is the best overall solution for applications in which power consumption and noise immunity are critical considerations. Clamp Schottky diode networks provide optimized lead inductance and parasitic capacitive effects (see added ground pins), improved forward voltage and crosstalk attributes, and best termination performance characteristics at high data transmission rates.
