Multipoint data transmission systems
The ADM2485 differential bus transceiver is an integrated,
galvanically isolated component designed for bidirectional data
communication on multipoint bus transmission lines. It is
designed for balanced transmission lines and complies with
ANSI/TIA/EIA RS-485-A-98 and ISO 8482:1987(E).
The device employs Analog Devices, Inc., iCoupler® technology
to combine a 3-channel isolator, a three-state differential line
driver, and a differential input receiver into a single package. An
on-chip oscillator outputs a pair of square waveforms that drive
an external transformer to provide isolated power with an external
transformer. The logic side of the device can be powered with
either a 5 V or a 3.3 V supply, and the bus side is powered with
an isolated 5 V supply.
FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
VDD1 D1 D2
The ADM2485 driver has an active high enable. The driver
differential outputs and the receiver differential inputs are
connected internally to form a differential input/output port
that imposes minimal loading on the bus when the driver is
disabled or when VDD1 or VDD2 = 0 V. Also provided is an active
high receiver disable that causes the receive output to enter a
high impedance state.
The device has current-limiting and thermal shutdown features
to protect against output short circuits and situations where bus
contention might cause excessive power dissipation. The part is
fully specified over the industrial temperature range and is available
in a 16-lead, wide-body SOIC package.
