Analog Devices’ Versatile 50 Mbps RS-485 Transceiver Series Protects Communication in Harsh Environments

Analog Devices, Inc. today announced the availability of two 50 Mbps RS-485/RS-422 transceivers for use in harsh environments including industrial automation, motor control, military and avionics. The ADM3065E and ADM3066E transceivers combine IEC61000-4-2 Level 4 electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection, high speed data communication, support of 1.8 VIO logic (ADM3066E), and an industrial temperature range all in small space saving packages. These features provide design flexibility while simplifying implementation and improving performance of standard RS-485 communication links. System level IEC ESD threats have discharge levels with much higher peak currents and voltages compared to HBM (Human Body Model) ESD.
