±15kV ESD-Protected USB Transceivers with External/Internal Pullup Resistors

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX13481E/MAX13482E/MAX13483E ±15kV ESD-protected USB-compliant transceivers interface low-voltage ASICs with USB devices. The transceivers fully comply to USB 2.0 when operating at full-speed (12Mbps). The transceivers also operate with VL as low as 1.6V, ensuring compatibility with low-voltage ASICs.

The MAX13481E/MAX13482E/MAX13483E feature a logic-selectable suspend mode that reduces current consumption. Integrated ±15kV ESD circuitry protects D+ and D- bus connections.

The MAX13481E/MAX13482E/MAX13483E operate over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range and are available in a 16-pin (3mm x 3mm) thin QFN package.
