How to Choose the Right RS-232 Transceiver

Despite the development of newer digital interface standards, the humble RS-232 serial port is still a very popular means of data transfer. Robust and easy to use, the RS-232 interface is still an attractive alternative to the more demanding and temperamental digital interfaces. This application note describes key features and helps the designer choose the right RS-232 transceiver. Factors to consider include:
– Power supply requirements
– Power consumption/battery-life features (such as autoshutdown)
– Speed (data rates)
– Compliance with signal level standards
– Enhanced ESD protection
– Isolation features
– Package size

The topics discussed inside the application note including the RS-232 background, the single-supply RS-232 transceiver, RS-232 transceivers powered by low-voltage single supplies, increased battery life through autoshutdown techniques, compatible versus compliant, enhanced ESD protection, data rates, package size, and many more.
