The MAX232CSE line driver/receiver is intended for all EIA/TIA-232E and V28/V24 communications interfaces, particularly applications where ±12V is not available. These parts are especially useful in battery-powered systems, since their low-power shutdown mode reduces power dissipation to less than 5μW. The MAX232CSE uses no external components and are recommended for applications where printed circuit board space is critical.
MAX232CSE absolute maximum ratings: (1)Supply Voltage (VCC): -0.3V to +6V; (2)V+: (VCC – 0.3V) to +14V; (3)V: +0.3V to +14V; (4)Input Voltages; (5)TIN: -0.3V to (VCC – 0.3V); (6)RIN (Except MAX220): ±30V; (7)RIN (MAX220): ±25V; (8)TOUT (Except MAX220): ±15V; (9)TOUT (MAX220): ±13.2V; (10)Output Voltages; (11)TOUT: ±15V; (12)ROUT: -0.3V to (VCC + 0.3V); (13)Driver/Receiver Output Short Circuited to GND: Continuous; (14)Storage Temperature Range: -65℃ to +160℃; (15)Lead Temperature (soldering, 10s): +300℃.
MAX232CSE features: (1)For Low-Voltage, Integrated ESD Applications MAX3222E/MAX3232E/MAX3237E/MAX3241E/MAX3246E: +3.0V to +5.5V, Low-Power, Up to 1Mbps, True RS-232 Transceivers Using Four 0.1μF External Capacitors; (2)For Low-Cost Applications MAX221E: ±15kV ESD-Protected, +5V, 1μA, Single RS-232 Transceiver with AutoShutdown.
