EXAR, the market leader, offers the industry's broadest line-up of UART
and serial protocol transceivers solutions.
With over 200 devices, wide 2.25 to 5.5V power supply range, 1 to 128 bytes of FIFO and compliance with the universal 3.3/5V PCI, Intel and Motorola bus interfaces, including single protocol ICs that support RS-232, RS-422 orRS-485 as well as dual and multi-protocol ICs that support from 2 to 8 of the most popular interface standards with a single IC, Exar has already done the difficult work for you.
We can deliver an immediate competitive advantage to your compressed time-to-market demands accelerating initial design, to functioning prototype and finally volume production.
The SP3073-3078E differential line transceivers are suitable for bidirectional communication on balanced multipoint bus transmission lines and comply with both RS485 and RS422 EIA Standards.
Each device consists of a differential driver and differential receiver. All devices
operate from a 3.3V power supply. High receiver input impedance allows a large number of transceivers to share a common data bus while maintaining signal margin and without excessive loading or use of expensive repeaters.
The high impedance driver output is maintained over the entire common-mode voltage range from -7 to +12V. Receivers will failsafe to logic 1 output when inputs are open, shorted or terminated. Drivers include built-in short-circuit protection and a thermal-overload shutdown to protect against excessive power dissipation from bus contention or cable faults.
All RS485 inputs are ESD protected up to ±15kV (Air-Gap and Human Body Model) and up to ±8kV Contact discharge (IEC 1000-4-2).
