Description

The MAX3291/MAX3292 high-speed RS-485/RS-422 transceivers feature driver preemphasis circuitry, which extends the distance and increases the data rate of reliable communication by reducing intersymbol interference (ISI) caused by long cables. The MAX3291 is programmable for data rates of 5Mbps to 10Mbps, while the MAX3292 is programmable for data rates up to 10Mbps by using a single external resistor.

The MAX3291/MAX3292 are full-duplex devices that operate from a single +5V supply and offer a low-current shutdown mode that reduces supply current to 100nA. They feature driver output short-circuit current limiting and a fail-safe receiver input that guarantees a logic-high output if the input is open circuit. A 1/4-unit-load receiver input impedance allows up to 128 transceivers on the bus.
