A low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) driver and receiver pair utilizing source-body-tied silicon-on-insulator CMOS transistors is shown to operate at 1 Gb/s data rates with zero bit error rate using a 2/sup 31/-1 pseudo-random bit sequence. For the driver, a level-shifter with gate voltage protection transitions from thin oxide core transistors to DGO output transistors was used. The receiver uses parallel PFET and NFET dual gate oxide transistors to enable common-mode input from 0-2.4 V.
