LVDS - Low Voltage Differential Signaling
LVDS means Low Voltage Differential Signaling according to ANSI/TIA/EIA-644-1995. The standard describes an interface for high-speed data transfer, basically determining the physical transmission layer with utilised protocol layers.
Initially, the LVDS interface was defined for internal communication connections within PCBs. However, because of its simple physical structure, interference tolerance and extremely high data rate it's become widely applied in external connections to control high-resolution displays in the industrial and automotive sector.
