Maxim IC MAX232 Multi-Channel RS-232 Drivers / Receivers

Maxim Integrated MAX232 Multi-Channel RS-232
Drivers / Receivers

Maxim Integrated's MAX232 multi-channel RS-232 drivers / receivers are +5V-powered devices intended for all EIA/TIA-232E and V.28/V.24 communications interfaces, particularly where ±12V is not available. The Maxim Integrated MAX232 employs four 1.0µF external capacitors and have a data rate of 120kbps. The MAX232A features 0.1µF external capacitors and a 200-kbps data rate. The MAX232E with ±15kV ESD protection is designed for RS-232 and V.28 communications in harsh environments. The MAX232 multi-channel RS-232 drivers / receivers also feature a low-power shutdown mode that reduces power dissipation to less than 5µW. Typical applications include portable computers, low-power modems, interface translation, battery-powered RS-232 systems, and multidrop RS-232 networks.
