Texas Instruments  SN65LBC180IDRQ1

The SN65LBC180 differential driver and receiver pair is a monolithic integrated circuit designed for bidirectional data communication over long cables that take on the characteristics of transmission lines. It is a balanced, or differential, voltage mode device that meets or exceeds the requirements of industry standards ANSI RS-485 and ISO 8482:1987(E). The device is designed using TI’s proprietary LinBiCMOS™ with the low power consumption of CMOS and the precision and robustness of bipolar transistors in the same circuit.

The SN65LBC180 combines a differential line driver and receiver with 3-state outputs and operates from a single 5-V supply. The driver and receiver have active-high and active-low enables, respectively, which can be externally connected to function as a direction control. The driver differential outputs and the receiver differential inputs are connected to separate terminals for full-duplex operation and are designed to present minimum loading to the bus whether disabled or powered off (VCC = 0). This part features a wide common-mode voltage range making it suitable for point-to-point or multipoint data-bus applications.

The devices also provide positive and negative output-current limiting and thermal shutdown for protection from line fault conditions. The line driver shuts down at a junction temperature of approximately 172°C.
