The MAX14940 isolated RS-485/PROFIBUS-DP transceiver provides 2750VRMS (60s) of galvanic isolation between the cable-side (RS-485 driver/receiver-side) and the UART-side of the device. Isolation improves communication by breaking ground loops and reduced noise when there are large differences in ground potential between ports. This device allows for robust communication up to 20Mbps.
The MAX14940 includes an integrated 450kHz transformer driver for power transfer to the cable-side of the transceiver using an external transformer. An integrated LDO provides a simple and space-efficient way of designing an isolated DC/DC supply.
The MAX14940 includes one half-duplex driver/receiver channel that is fully compliant with both RS-485 and PROFIBUS-DP standards. The receiver is 1/4-unit load, allowing up to 128 transceivers on a common bus.
Integrated true fail-safe circuitry ensures a logic-high on the receiver output when inputs are shorted or open. Undervoltage lockout disables the driver when cable-side or UART-side power supplies are below functional levels.
The driver outputs/receiver inputs are protected from ±35kV electrostatic discharge (ESD) to GNDB on the cable-side, as specified by the Human Body Model (HBM).
The MAX14940 is available in a wide body 16-pin SOIC package and operates over the -40°C to +105°C temperature range.
