  • Publication number: 20170181081
    Abstract: A transmitting circuit includes a serializer that converts parallel data into serial data based on a clock signal, a driver that generates differential signals based on the serial data, and a clock buffer that provides the clock signal to the serializer. In a standby state, the clock buffer cuts off the clock signal and the serializer outputs the serial data according to a reset signal such that standby differential signals indicating the standby state are generated by the driver irrespective of the clock signal.
