Low Voltage Differential Signaling

LVDS stands for low voltage differential signalling. This is an interface standard for high-speed data transfers. At today’s state of the technology, the data transfer limit is several GBit/s!
In this instance, low voltage means the LVDS interface’s low voltage range (±350 mV).
Differential signal transmission means that two wires are used. The difference between the voltages is therefore decisive for the logic state.

A great advantage of LVDS lies in the higher transfer rates and cable lengths that are possible. For example, being able to operate displays with resolutions of 1280 x 800 and above is only possible using LVDS.

This is typically no longer possible using RGB (TTL).


Thanks to using dual channel LVDS, our systems can reach a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). Furthermore, using LVDS it is possible for us to control remote displays, as differential signals are more resistant to interference. In these situations, at resolutions of 1920 x 1080 pixels, cable lengths of one metre are achievable.

This means that you have at your disposal a greater variety of possible applications for our SANTARO and SANTOKA devices (from 7" as standard; smaller display sizes depending on project).
Our sales team would be pleased to advise you on LVDS. Just one click here is all it takes.
