over recommended ranges of supply voltage and operating free-air temperature (unless otherwise noted)
PARAMETER TEST CONDITIONS(3) MIN TYP(1) MAX UNIT
VOH High-level output voltage R1OUT, R2OUT IOH = –1 mA 3.5 V
VOL Low-level output voltage(2) R1OUT, R2OUT IOL = 3.2 mA 0.4 V
VIT+ Receiver positive-going input threshold voltage R1IN, R2IN VCC = 5 V, TA = 25°C 1.7 2.4 V
VIT– Receiver negative-going input threshold voltage R1IN, R2IN VCC = 5 V, TA = 25°C 0.8 1.2 V
Vhys Input hysteresis voltage R1IN, R2IN VCC = 5 V 0.2 0.5 1 V
rI Receiver input resistance R1IN, R2IN VCC = 5 V, TA = 25°C 3 5 7 kΩ
All typical values are at VCC = 5 V, TA = 25°C.
The algebraic convention, in which the least-positive (most negative) value is designated minimum, is used in this data sheet for logic voltage levels only.
Test conditions are C1–C4 = 1 μF at VCC = 5 V ± 0.5 V.
