Exar XR3070-78X Low Power 18V Tolerant RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers

Exar XR3070-78X Low Power 18V Tolerant RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers are a family of high performance RS-485/422 devices that improve performance in noisy industrial environments and increase tolerance to system faults. The analog bus pins withstand direct shorts up to ±18V, and are protected against ESD events up to ±15kV. The differential high output driver delivers 10% higher SNR than standard RS-485/422 devices, allowing additional noise margin or extended cable lengths. Full fail-safe circuitry on the receivers guarantee logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open, shorted, or undriven. With a minimum 96kΩ (1/8 unit load) receiver input impedance, XR3070-78X allows up to 256 devices on the bus while preserving the full signal margin. Short circuit detection as well as thermal shutdown protect the drivers and maintain high impedance in shutdown or when powered off. The XR3070-75X drivers are slew limited for reduced EMI and error-free communication over long or unterminated data cables. The transceivers draw less than 600μA from a +3.3V supply, and typically only 300μA when idling with the receivers active.

Exar XR3160E RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers

Exar XR3160E RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers are advanced multiprotocol transceivers with 15KV ESD protection. All transmitter outputs and receiver inputs provide robust electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection to ±15kV IEC 61000-4-2 Airgap, ±15kV Human Body Model (HBM) and ±8kV IEC 61000-4-2 Contact. Full fail-safe protection is included on each receiver output to avoid system lockup, oscillation, or indeterminate states by defaulting to logic-high output level when the inputs are open, shorted, or terminated but undriven. XR3160E's high speed drivers operate up to 20Mbps in RS-485/422 modes, and up to 1Mbps in RS-232 mode. The RS-232 receiver inputs include a 5kΩ pull-down to ground when in RS-232 mode. The RS-485/422 receiver inputs are high impedance (>96kΩ), allowing up to 256 devices on a single communication bus (1/8th unit load). Operating from a single power supply from 3V to 5.5V, the shutdown mode consumes less than 1μA in low power standby operation with RS-232 receivers enabled. All drivers can be slew limited to 250kbps in any mode to minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI) by setting the dedicated SLEW pin low.
