The ADM3070E to ADM3078E are 3.3 V, low power data
transceivers with ±15 kV ESD protection suitable for full- and
half-duplex communication on multipoint bus transmission
lines. They are designed for balanced data transmission, and they
comply with TIA/EIA standards RS-485 and RS-422.
The devices have an ⅛ unit load receiver input impedance,
which allows up to 256 transceivers on a bus. Because only one
driver should be enabled at any time, the output of a disabled or
powered-down driver is tristated to avoid overloading the bus.
The receiver inputs have a true fail-safe feature, which
eliminates the need for external bias resistors and ensures a
logic high output level when the inputs are open or shorted.
This guarantees that the receiver outputs are in a known state
before communication begins and when communication ceases.
