Document Table of Contents Single-Ended I/O Standards External Termination

SSTL-12, HSTL-12, POD12 I/O standards require an input VREF and a termination voltage (VTT). The reference voltage of the receiving device tracks the termination voltage of the transmitting device.

Intel recommends that you use OCT with these I/O standards to save board space and cost. OCT reduces the number of external termination resistors used.

Note: You cannot use RS and RT OCT simultaneously. For more information, refer to the related information.
