Product Details

The EVAL-ADM3068EEBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of the ADM3068E 50 Mbps, RS-485 transceiver with a standard, 14-lead SOIC_N footprint. The evaluation board allows the input and output functions to be exercised without external components. Screw terminal blocks provide convenient connections for power and ground, digital input and output signals, and RS-485 signals. The evaluation board is powered by a standard configurable benchtop power supply within the 3.0 V to 5.5 V range. A flexible VIO logic supply allows communication with processors running on voltages as low as 1.62 V.

The EVAL-ADM3068EEBZ evaluation board has a footprint for the ADM3068EBRZ full duplex, RS-485 transceiver in a 14-lead SOIC_N package.

For full details, see the ADM3068E data sheet, which must be used in conjunction with this user guide and the EVAL-ADM3068EEBZ evaluation board.
