XR3160

RS232/RS485/RS422 Transceiver with 15KV ESD Protection

Description

The XR3160 is an advanced multiprotocol transceiver supporting RS-232, RS-485, and RS-422 serial standards. Full operation requires only four external charge pump capacitors.

The RS-485/RS-232 pin selects RS-485 mode when high and RS-232 mode when low. The HALF/FULL pin configures the RS-485 modes as either half or full duplex.

The high speed drivers operate up to 20Mbps in RS-485/422 modes, and up to 1Mbps in RS-232 mode. All drivers can be slew limited to 250kbps in any mode to minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI) by setting the dedicated SLEW pin low.

All transmitter outputs and receiver inputs feature robust electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection to ±15kV IEC 61000-4-2 Airgap, ±15kV Human Body Model (HBM) and ±8kV IEC 61000-4-2 Contact. Each receiver output has full fail-safe protection to avoid system lockup, oscillation, or indeterminate states by defaulting to logic-high output level when the inputs are open, shorted, or terminated but undriven. No external biasing resistors are required.

The RS-232 receiver inputs include a 5kΩ pull-down to ground when in RS-232 mode. The RS-485/422 receiver inputs are high impedance (>96kΩ), allowing up to 256 devices on a single communication bus (1/8th unit load).

The XR3160 operates from a single power supply, 3V to 5.5V, with low idle current. The shutdown mode consumes less than 1µA in low power standby operation with RS-232 receivers enabled.
