The LTC2850, LTC2851 and LTC2852 are low power, 20Mbps RS485/RS422 transceivers operating on 3.3V supplies. The receiver has a one-eighth unit load supporting up to 256 nodes per bus (C, I-grade), and a failsafe feature that guarantees a high output state under conditions of floating or shorted inputs.
The driver maintains a high output impedance over the entire common mode range when disabled or when the supply is removed. Excessive power dissipation caused by bus contention or a fault is prevented by current limiting all outputs and by thermal shutdown.
Enhanced ESD protection allows these parts to withstand up to ±15kV (human body model) on the transceiver interface pins without latchup or damage.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The EVAL-RS485FD8EBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of full-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) 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.
