• MAX488 RS-485/RS-422 Line Driver/Receiver IC DIP-8 Package

The MAX488 has reduced slew-rate drivers that minimize EMI and reduce reflections caused by improperly terminated cables, thus allowing error-free data transmission up to 250kbps. Drivers are short-circuit current limited and are protected against excessive power dissipation by thermal shutdown circuitry that places the driver outputs into a high-impedance state. The receiver input has a fail-safe feature that guarantees a logic-high output if the input is open circuit. Full-duplex communications are obtained using the MAX488.
