The MAX3080–MAX3089 high-speed transceivers for RS-485/RS-422 communication contain one driver and one receiver. These devices feature fail-safe circuitry, which guarantees a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open or shorted. This means that the receiver output will be a logic high if all transmitters on a terminated bus are disabled (high impedance).
The MAX3080/MAX3081/MAX3082 feature reduced slew-rate drivers that minimize EMI and reduce reflections caused by improperly terminated cables, allowing error-free data transmission up to 115kbps. The MAX3083/MAX3084/MAX3085 offer higher driver out put slew-rate limits, allowing transmit speeds up to 500kbps. The MAX3086/MAX3087/MAX3088’s driver slew rates are not limited, making transmit speeds up to 10Mbps possible. The MAX3089’s slew rate is
selectable between 115kbps, 500kbps, and 10Mbps by driving a selector pin with a single three-state driver.
These transceivers typically draw 375µA of supply current when unloaded, or when fully loaded with the drivers disabled.
