With so many transceivers available, it can be challenging to pick the best, most cost-effective device for your application.
This white paper guides you through the choices and weighs key design considerations to help you pick the right transceiver.
• First, we’ll review some typical RS-485 ICs and explore common design considerations.
• Then, we’ll examine ESD protection and compare the HBM and IEC61000-4-2 standards.
• Finally, we’ll discuss over voltage protection and provide a snapshot of very high-speed transceivers.
