Abstract

Excessive transient output voltage excursions caused by push-pull driver circuits driving unterminated transmission lines can result in increased package noise generation and driver delay adders. The driver circuit illustrated in Fig. 1 is a push-pull split-phase driver type which is designed to control output up-going transient overshoots and restore the driver output voltage to its DC value in a reasonable amount of time.
