Low-power-rs-232c-driver

  
This circuit draws only 4 mA from a 5-V supply while driving a standard RS-232C receiver. The system clock drives a de-de converter that produces -3.4 V. The frequency can range from 0.5 to 8 MHz, but a range of 0.5 to 1 MHz will minimize power dissipation. The circuit output withstands direct shorts to ground or to either of the supplies ( ±12 V max).

In place of the 74HC04 high-speed CMOS driver shown, you may want to substitute miscellaneous spare gates; one noninverting buffer, for example, can replace the two inverting types that receive the UART signal.
