Low Power 5V 250Kbps RS232 Transceivers (Features 28-pin, with Wake Up, ±6V Output Voltage Swing)

Add Favorites


The ZT230E series devices are +5V powered EIA/TIA-232 and V.28/V.24 communication interfaces with low power requirements. These transceivers consist of combinations up to five line drivers, five line receivers and the proprietary switch-capacitor regulated voltage converters. The ZT211E and ZT213E/AE feature a low power shutdown mode which draws as little current as 1µA typical with receiver outputs tri-stated and in wake-up. These devices operate from a single +5V power supply at the guaranteed data rate of 250K bits/sec with enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection in all RS232 I/O pins exceeding ±15kV HBM.
