Press Release Summary:
As Â±15 kV IEC61000 ESD-protected, 5 V-powered, single transceiver, ISL3159E comes in industrial and extended Industrial (-40 to +125Â°C) temperature ranges and supports data rates to 40 Mbps. ESD Protected ISL3179E is 3.3 V-powered, single transceiver featuring Receiver (Rx) inputs that have full fail-safe design. For both models, bus currents present 1/5 unit load to RS-485 bus to allow up to 160 transceivers on network without violating RS-485 specification's 32 unit load maximum.

Future Electronics Offers Intersil's Newly Released ISL3159E/79E RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers
Pointe Claire, Quebec - Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced immediate availability of ISL3159E/79E RS-485/RS-422 Transceivers from Intersil.
Intersil's ISL3159E is a ±15kV IEC61000 ESD protected, 5V powered, single transceiver that meets both the RS-485 and RS-422 standards for balanced communication. It also features the larger output voltage and higher data rate - up to 40Mbps - required by high speed PROFIBUS applications, and is offered in industrial and extended Industrial (-40°C to +125°C) temperature ranges. The low bus currents (+220?A/-150?A) present a "1/5 unit load" to the RS-485 bus. This allows up to 160 transceivers on the network without violating the RS-485 specification's load limit and without using repeaters.
Intersil's ISL3179E is a high ESD Protected, 3.3V powered, single transceiver that meets both the RS-485 and RS-422 standards for balanced communication. Each device has low bus currents (+220?A/-150?A), so it presents a "1/5 unit load" to the RS-485 bus. This allows up to 160 transceivers on the network without violating the RS-485 specification's 32 unit load maximum, and without using repeaters. Receiver (Rx) inputs feature a "full fail-safe" design, which ensures a logic high Rx output if Rx inputs are floating, shorted, or terminated but undriven.
Typical applications for the ISL3159E and ISL3179E transceivers include PROFIBUS DP and FMS networks, SCSI "fast 40" drivers and receivers, motor controller/position encoder systems, factory automation, field bus networks, security networks, building environmental control systems, and industrial/process control networks.
Both the ISL3159E and ISL3179E transceivers are currently in stock with immediate shipping availability from Future Electronics.
