2.5 kV Signal Isolated, 500 kbps, Half Duplex RS-485 Transceiver
The ADM2481 is slew-limited to reduce reflections with improperly terminated transmission lines. The controlled slew rate limits the data rate to 500 kbps. The input impedance of the device is 96 kΩ, allowing up to 256 transceivers on the bus. Its driver has an active-high enable feature. The driver differential outputs and receiver differential inputs are connected internally to form a differential I/O port. When the driver is disabled or when VDD1 or VDD2 = 0 V, this imposes minimal loading on the bus. An active-high receiver disable feature, which causes the receiver output to enter a high impedance state, is provided as well.
The receiver inputs have a true fail-safe feature that ensures a logic-high receiver output level when the inputs are open or shorted. This guarantees that the receiver outputs are in a known state before communication begins and at the point when communication ends.
Current limiting and thermal shutdown features protect against output short circuits and bus contention situations that might cause excessive power dissipation. The part is fully specified over the industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C and is available in a 16-lead, wide body SOIC package.Applications

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
The ezLINX™ iCoupler® Isolated Interface Development Environment provides developers with a cost-effective, plug and play method for evaluation eight physical layer, digitally-isolated communication standards (USB, RS-422, RS-485, RS-232, CAN, SPI, I2C, and LVDS). The Blackfin® ADSP-BF548 processor is used to run the uCLinux operating system and allows for easy customization through the open source hardware and software platform. Development time is significantly reduced for embedded designers and system architects who are designing and evaluating isolated communication standards. The interfaces on ezLINX use ADI's isolated transceivers with integrated iCoupler® and isoPower® digital isolator technology.
