  1. The supply variety on ECL parts in general has ever
    been diminishing over the years, the variety is not
    even continuous. I should now connect an FPGA to a
    bunch of ECLs. The LVDS to LVPECL translation can be
    done with a 65LVDS100. Further I can only find a few
    ECL parts and finally I should connect to LVPECL
    again. I consider now lowering the Vcc for the PECL
    to 3.3V and set the associated GND to -1.9V for a blunt
    signal connection. The signals of (LV)ECL in general
    are referenced to the respective Vcc, so this should
    be doable.

    FPGA-LVDS -> 65LVDS100(3.3V,0V) -> PECL (+3.3V,-1.9V) -> LVPECL(3.3V,0V)

    Differential signal may have less problems than single
    ended in this configuration, I guess. A one point I'll
    have to go single ended though.

    MAX9375 is another option for LVDS to LVPECL

    Not made in quantity, discontinued or not easy to buy through distribution?
    I got samples from Maxim quite recently.

    They're Maxim. That's enough.
    Tell us how it works out for you when they can't (or won't) deliver real
    product. I think we have two Max parts designed in our products. They'll be
    gone the next time I touch the boards. I've had to train the disties not to
    use the 'M' word. ;-)
