Product Details

The ADM3483E/ADM3486E/ADM3488E/ADM3490E/ADM3491E are 3.3 V low power data transceivers with ±15 kV ESD protection suitable for fulland half-duplex communication on multipoint bus transmission lines. They are designed for balanced data transmission and comply with TIA/EIA standards RS-485 and RS-422. The ADM3483E/ADM3486E is a half-duplex transceiver that shares differential lines and has separate enable inputs for the driver and receiver. The full-duplex ADM3488E/ADM3490E/ADM3491E transceivers have dedicated differential line driver outputs and receiver inputs. The ADM3491E also features enable inputs for the driver and receiver.

The devices have a 12 kΩ receiver input impedance which allows up to 32 transceivers on a bus. Since only one driver should be enabled at any time, the output of a disabled or powered down driver is three-stated to avoid overloading the bus. The driver outputs of the ADM3483E/ADM3486E/ADM3488E are slew rate limited in order to reduce EMI and data errors caused by reflections from improperly terminated buses. The receiver has a failsafe feature which ensures a logic high output when the inputs are floating. Excessive power dissipation caused by bus contention or by output shorting is prevented with a thermal shutdown circuit. The parts are fully specified over the industrial temperature ranges and are available in narrow 8-lead and 14-lead (ADM3491E) SOIC packages.

EVAL-RS485FDEBZ Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The EVAL-RS485FDEBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of full-duplex RS-485 transceivers with standard 14-lead SOIC footprints. The evaluation board allows interfacing via screw terminal block to digital I/O for driver input (DI), receiver output (RO), driver enable (DE) and receiver output (RO). Bus signals A, B, Y and Z (full-duplex bus) can be connected to a bus screw terminal block. Termination resistors are fitted across A and B, as well as Y and Z. These can be connected in half-duplex configuration (A to Y, B to Z), in order to evaluate the RS-485 driver. Footprints are provided for pull-up and pull-down (biasing resistors) on the receiver inputs in order to provide the option to evaluate an RS-485 receiver with this configuration.

Devices for evaluation on the board must be ordered separately.
