Low-dissipation Multiple Line Drivers/Receivers

AD230-AD241 CMOS RS-232 device series use +5-volt supplies AD401 & AD402 BiCMOS device support RS-232 and RS-422

Two new series of integrated circuits, designated AD230 through AD241, and AD401 & AD402, provide the signal-level translation, drive capability, and receiver thresholds required in RS-232 and RS-422 interface applications. In addition, they make available such features as operation from a single +5-V supply (while delivering a bipolar output), multiple drivers/receivers in one package, low-power "shutdown" mode, TTL- and CMOS-compatible transmitter inputs/receiver outputs, and 3-state receiver output. Read full article
