Texas Instruments' SN65HVD3082 is a half-duplex transceiver designed for RS-485 data bus networks. Powered by a 5 V supply, it is fully compliant with TIA/EIA-485A standards. With controlled transition times, this device is suitable for transmitting data over long twisted-pair cables. The SN65HVD3082E is optimized for signaling rates up to 200 kbps, and is suitable for data transmission up to 1 Mbps. This device is designed to operate with very low supply current, typically 0.3 mA, exclusive of the load. When in the inactive shutdown mode, the supply current drops to a few nanoamps, making it ideal for power-sensitive applications.
