When designing industrial automation, motion control, e-meter, security electronics or building automation systems, engineers face the challenge of designing for high noise-immunity and robust communication over long cable lengths. TI offers single- or multi-channel, half- or full-duplex, 3.3- or 5-V-supply RS-485 integrated circuits (ICs), with a variety of features, including high-voltage standoff, fail-safe receivers and integrated isolation. Evaluation kits, simulation models, and application notes make it easy to complete the design.
