Superior Flexibility of RS485-Networking Transceiver from STMicroelectronics Simplifies Design, Saves Board Space and Bill of Materials

Geneva, December 3, 2018 — The STMicroelectronics STR485LV 3.3V transceiver for RS485  a (physical layer) communication standard broadly used in industrial systems applications enhances design flexibility by providing an external pin to select 20Mbps or 250kbps communication and interfacing directly with low-voltage logic down to 1.8V.

The user-selectable data rate allows designers to specify the same device and thus simplify inventory management for RS485-networking applications, ranging from high-speed/short-range up to the maximum communication distance (4000 feet) depending on cable performance. It is ideal for a wide variety of scenarios, including telecom infrastructure, high-speed data links, or low-voltage microcontroller … Read More → "Superior Flexibility of RS485-Networking Transceiver from STMicroelectronics Simplifies Design, Saves Board Space and Bill of Materials"
