Patent Searching and Data

Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/074150
Kind Code:
Provided is an interface circuit for conducting bidirectional data transmission between a host device and a sub device, wherein a function to make current consumption zero in standby state, and a stable start-up sequence are attained. The electric potential of a differential signal is pulled up to the electric potential of the power supply by a pull up element (4), in idle/standby state. Upon shifting to normal state, the common mode electric potential decreases gradually from the electric potential of the power supply, as the differential signal starts being outputted. When a level detector circuit (10) at the sub device (2) side detects that the common mode electric potential has become lower than a prescribed level, the interface circuit evaluates that a normal state has been attained, and starts the sub device (2).
