Title: Method and apparatus for producing a reference voltage

Abstract: The invention relates to a method and an apparatus for producing a reference voltage that is applied to reference voltage inputs on receiver units in order to discriminate between the logic states of a data signal that is transmitted to a receiver end. A transmission device transmits, in addition to the data signal, a clock signal to the receiver end. The receiver end has, on the output side of a receiver unit that receives the clock signal, an integrator that integrates the clock signal and produces the reference voltage from the integrated value.
