Re: Si570 LVDS Output Impedance

For that purpose, I'd try to assure 50 ohms by following the output with an
attenuator. I wouldn't assume a specific source resistance internal to the

Another issue if you're trying to use the si570 in a signal generator type
of application is that the Si570 has a square wave output. However, if as
you say you are interested in a single channel use, you can LPF that signal
into a sine wave.

My goal is to get a single channel output with exactly 50 ohms impedace.

By using a transformer 1:4 if the outputs of the si570 doesn't have
exactly 50 ohm I will get at the output of the transformer an impedace
higher or lower than 50 ohm.

I'm working with UHF sgnales 430 mhz.
