The ADM488A and ADM489A are low power, differential line transceivers suitable for communication on multipoint bus transmission lines. They are intended for balanced data transmission and comply with both RS-485 and RS-422 standards of the Electronics Industries Association (EIA). Both products contain a single differential line driver and a single differential line receiver, making them suitable for full-duplex data transfer. The ADM489A contains an additional receiver and driver enable control.
The input impedance is 12 kΩ, allowing 32 transceivers to be connected on the bus. The ADM488A/ADM489A operate from a single 5 V ± 10% power supply.
Excessive power dissipation that is caused by bus contention or output shorting is prevented by a thermal shutdown circuit. This feature forces the driver output into a high impedance state if, during fault conditions, a significant temperature increase is detected in the internal driver circuitry. The receiver contains a fail-safe feature that results in a logic high output state if the inputs are unconnected (floating).
The ADM488A/ADM489A are fabricated on BiCMOS, an advanced mixed technology process combining low power CMOS with fast switching bipolar technology.
The ADM488A/ADM489A are fully specified over the industrial temperature range and are available in SOIC and MSOP packages.Applications

Solving Isolation Challenges in Industrial Automation
This webcast will discuss the role isolation plays in providing protection and reducing the system bit-error-rate, using the specific design challenges of an RS-485 network. Topics to be covered in this presentation will include: Why and when one should isolate, Types of isolation and their advantages, Design Considerations for an RS-485 node (and how this translates to design considerations for signal isolation) as well as many other topics.
