The LTC1484 is a low power RS485 compatible transceiver. In receiver mode, it offers a fail-safe feature which guarantees a high receiver output state when the inputs are left open, shorted together or terminated with no signal present. No external components are required to ensure the high receiver output state.
Both driver and receiver feature three-state outputs with separate receiver and driver control pins. The driver outputs maintain high impedance over the entire common mode range when three-stated. Excessive power dissipation caused by bus contention or faults is prevented by a thermal shutdown circuit that forces the driver outputs into a high impedance state.
Enhanced ESD protection allows the LTC1484 to withstand ±15kV (human body model), IEC-1000-4-2 level 4 (±8kV) contact and level 3 (±8kV) air discharge ESD without latchup or damage.
The LTC1484 is fully specified over the commercial and industrial temperature ranges and is available in 8-lead MSOP, PDIP and SO packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The EVAL-RS485HDEBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of half-duplex RS-485 transceivers with standard 8-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 and B (half-duplex bus) can be connected to a bus screw terminal block. One or two termination resistors can be connected to A and B via jumper settings, in order to evaluation the half-duplex RS-485 driver and receiver. Footprints are provided for pull-up and pull-down (biasing resistors) on the bus.
Devices for evaluation on the board must be ordered separately.
