Texas – Highest-performance 3.3V RS485 transceivers for industrial applications (SN65HVD72)Sep 7 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced what it believes to be the highest-performance 3.3V RS485 transceivers with IEC electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection available in speed grades up to 50Mbps.
The 250kbps SN65HVD72, 20Mbps SN65HVD75 and 50Mbps SN65HVD78 perform better than the competition across all key performance areas, including power, ESD and hysteresis, offering a tailored solution for designers using RS485 transceivers in harsh, noisy industrial applications. To further enhance design, the devices feature a wide common-mode voltage range suitable for multi-point applications over long cable runs.
The SN65HVD72, SN65HVD75 and SN65HVD78 devices are available now in an 8-pin SOIC package. MSOP package options will be available in 4Q2012, says the company.
The SN65HVD72EVM evaluation module is available to support fast development and analysis of data transmission systems using the SN65HVD72, SN65HVD75 and SN65HVD78 transceivers, along with an IBIS model.More news from Texas Instruments
