MAX3463

+5V, Fail-Safe, 20Mbps, PROFIBUS RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX3460–MAX3464 are high-speed differential bus transceivers for RS-485 and RS-422 communications. They are designed to meet TIA/EIA-422-B, TIA/EIA-485-A, V.11, and X.27 standards. The transceiver complies with the PROFIBUS specification providing +2.1V output level with a 54Ω load, 20Mbps data rate, and output skew less than 2ns. Each part contains one three-state differential line driver and one differential input line receiver. The devices operate from a +5V supply and feature true fail-safe circuitry, which guarantees a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open or shorted. This enables all receiver outputs on a terminated bus to output logic highs when all transmitters are disabled.

All devices feature a 1/4 standard unit load receiver input impedance that allows 128 transceivers on the bus. Driver and receiver propagation delays are guaranteed under 20ns for multidrop, clock distribution applications. Drivers are short-circuit current limited and are protected against excessive power dissipation by thermal shutdown circuitry. The driver and receiver feature active-high and active-low enables, respectively, that can be connected together externally to serve as a direction control.
