The distinction between LVDS and TTL would be that LVDS relates to information transmission mode, whereas TTL refers to suitable transmission. In LVDS, two wires with various voltages are used, while TTL uses a ground system reference to identify the presence or absence of voltage in digital digits of 0 or 1. LVDS requires around 350mV of power. Because LVDS has excellent resistance to distortion, gadgets can use length wires. Twisted pair copper wires are employed in LVDS to produce strong electromagnet coupling. They have the capacity to stabilize voltage spikes. In contrast to TTL, the third point of reference ...

In this tutorial, we will discuss the realization of an inverter (NOT gate) with a transistor. But before that let's have a look into the basics of inverter or NOT gate. What is an Inverter (NOT Gate)? An inverter is a single input and single output logic gate that toggles or inverts the logic level (or state) of a single to the opposite state or logic level. The inverter is also known as NOT gate. When a low signal (logic 0) is applied to an inverter, it transforms it to a high signal (logic 1). If a high signal (logic ... Read More

Both thyristors and transistors are semiconductor devices widely used in various applications. Read through this article to find out how a thyristor differs from a transistor.What is a Thyristor?A thyristor is a four-layer three-terminal semiconductor device. A thyristor consists of three PN-junctions. The three terminals of the thyristor are: anode (A), cathode (C) and gate (G). The gate is the terminal of the thyristor which is used to provide control signal to the device. The circuit symbol of the thyristor is shown in Figure-1.A thyristor possesses high ratings of voltage and current and also has the ability to handle large ... Read More
