ISL3241E

QFN, ±15kV ESD Protected, 250kbps, RS-232 3-Tx, 5-Rx, with Logic Supply Pin and Rx enable

Product Status: Mass Production

OVERVIEW

The Intersil ISL324xE devices are 2.7V to 3.6V powered RS-232 transmitters/receivers which meet ElA/TIA-232 and V.28/V.24 specifications, even at VCC = 3.0V. Additionally, they provide ±15kV ESD protection (IEC61000-4-2 Air Gap and Human Body Model) on transmitter outputs and receiver inputs (RS-232 pins). Targeted applications are POS systems, and notebook and laptop computers where the low operational, and even lower standby, power consumption is critical. Efficient on-chip charge pumps, coupled with manual and automatic power-down functions, reduce the standby supply current to a 0.5µA trickle. Tiny 5mmx5mm Quad Flat

(QFN) packaging and the use of small, low value capacitors ensure board space savings as well. Data rates greater than 250kbps are guaranteed at worst case load conditions.

ISL324xE are 3 driver, 5 receiver devices that, coupled with the 5x5 QFN package, provide the industry's smallest, lowest power complete serial port. The 5x5 QFN requires 60% less board area than a 28 Ld TSSOP, and is nearly 20% thinner. These devices also include a noninverting always-active receiver for "wake-up" capability.

The ISL3243E features an automatic powerdown function that powers down the on-chip power supply and driver circuits. This occurs when an attached peripheral device is shut off or the RS-232 cable is removed, conserving system power automatically without changes to the hardware or operating system. It powers up again when a valid RS-232 voltage is applied to any receiver input.

The ISL324xE feature a VL pin that adjusts the logic pin (see "Pin Descriptions" on page 2) output levels and input thresholds to values compatible with the VCC powering the external logic (e.g., a UART).

Table 1 summarizes the features of the ISL324xE.
