ICL3232 250kbps RS-232 Transmitters/Receivers

The Intersil ICL32XX devices are 3. 0V to 5. 5V powered RS-232 transmitters/receivers which meet ElA/TIA-232 and V. 28/V. 24 specifications, even at VCC = 3. 0V. Targeted applications are PDAs, Palmtops, and notebook and laptop computers where the low operational, and even lower standby, power consumption is critical. Efficient on-chip charge pumps, co

upled with manual and automatic powerdown functions (except for the ICL3232), reduce the standby supply current to a 1 µA trickle. Small footprint 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. This family is fully compatible with 3. 3V only systems, mixed 3. 3V and 5. 0V systems, and 5. 0V only systems. The ICL324X are 3-driver, 5-receiver devices that provide a complete serial port suitable for laptop or notebook computers. Both devices also include noninverting alwaysactive receivers for "wake-up" capability. The ICL3221, ICL3223 and ICL3243, feature an automatic powerdown function which 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. These devices power up again when a valid RS-232 voltage is applied to any receiver input. Table 1 summarizes the features of the devices represented by this data sheet, while Application Note AN9863 summarizes the features of each device comprising the ICL32XX 3V family.
