Texas Instruments' THVD2450 is a ±70 V fault-protected, half-duplex RS-485 transceiver that operates on a single 3 V to 5.5 V supply. The bus interface pins are protected against overvoltage conditions during modes of operation to ensure robust communication in rugged industrial environments.

This transceiver device features integrated IEC ESD protection eliminating the need for external system-level protection components. The extended ±25 V input common-mode range provides reliable data communication over longer cable run lengths and/or in the presence of large ground loop voltages. Enhanced 250 mV receiver hysteresis ensures high noise rejection. The receiver's failsafe feature offers a logic high when the inputs are open or shorted together.

The THVD2450 device is available in small VSSOP and VSON packages making it suitable for space-constrained applications. These devices are characterized over an ambient free-air temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
