The high-speed mode can be selected by applying a logic low to the RS pin (pin 8). The high-speed mode of operation is commonly employed in industrial applications. High-speed allows the output to switch as fast as possible with no internal limitation on the output rise and fall slopes. If the high speed transitions are a concern for emissions performance slope control mode can be used.
If both high speed mode and the low-power standby mode is to be used in the application, direct connection to a µP, MCU or DSP general purpose output pin can be used to switch between a logic-low level (< 1.2 V) for high speed operation, and the logic-high level (> 0.75 VCC) for standby. Figure 30 shows a typical DSP connection, and Figure 31 shows the HVD230 driver output signal in high-speed mode on the CAN bus.
