For DC coupled operation of an LVDS driver, terminate with 100 Ω as close as possible to the LVDS receiver as shown in Figure 29.
For DC coupled operation of an HCSL driver, terminate with 50 Ω to ground near the driver output as shown in Figure 30. Series resistors, Rs, may be used to limit overshoot due to the fast transient current. Because HCSL drivers require a DC path to ground, AC coupling is not allowed between the output drivers and the 50 Ω termination resistors.
For DC coupled operation of an LVPECL driver, terminate with 50 Ω to Vcco - 2 V as shown in Figure 31. Alternatively terminate with a Thevenin equivalent circuit as shown in Figure 32 for Vcco (output driver supply voltage) = 3.3 V and 2.5 V. In the Thevenin equivalent circuit, the resistor dividers set the output termination voltage (VTT) to Vcco - 2 V.
