NTB0104 bi-directional buffer oscillation

Discussion created by Joe Baldwin on May 24, 2016

I'm using this bidirectional buffer to isolate several EEPROM on a backplane from the uP.  We are using the the auto sensing feature to allow 2-way traffic on the serial data buss.  During the brief periods when neither the uP or the EEPROM is communicating, the buffer goes into 100MHz oscillation.  This is causing problems in the system with other devices.  Is there a way to prevent these oscillations?
