MAX232 Dual Driver/Receiver 16DIP

Monster Electronic



The MAX232 is a dual driver/receiver that includes a capacitive voltage generator to supply EIA-232 voltage

levels from a single 5-V supply. Each receiver converts EIA-232 inputs to 5-V TTL/CMOS levels. These

receivers have a typical threshold of 1.3 V and a typical hysteresis of 0.5 V, and can accept ±30-V inputs. Each

driver converts TTL/CMOS input levels into EIA-232 levels. The driver, receiver, and voltage-generator

functions are available as cells in the Texas Instruments LinASIClibrary.
