12Mbps,3.3~5V Powered, Half-duplex RS485 Transceiver——SCM3403ASA


Introduction of Half-duplex RS485 Transceiver—SCM3403ASA

SCM3401 and SCM3402 family, our Half-duplex RS-485 transceiver with 3.3V or 5V powered, received a warm response from the market since its launch. To better fulfill a wide power range and more competitive cost, SCM3403ASA complying with TIA/EIA-485 is launched to be compatible with 3.3V and 5V powered.

The SCM3403ASA is half-duplex and low-power RS485 transceiver, which the ESD protection of bus port above 15kV HBM and bus withstand voltage up to ±15V. It includes a driver and a receiver, both of which can be independently enabled and disabled. When both are disabled, they are a high-impedance output state. SCM3403ASA has fail-safe, current limit protection, and over-voltage protection.

Half-duplex RS485 isolator ic SCM3403ASA presents a 1/8 unit load, which allows up to 256 transceivers on the same communication bus for large node count systems (for example, remote meter reading systems). In a remote utility meter reading system, individual utility meter readings are routed to a concentrator with an RS-485 network, so the high allowed node count minimizes the number of repeaters required to network all the meters. Data for all meters is then read out from the concentrator from a single access port or a wireless link. And data rates up to 12Mbps are achievable by using the SCM3403ASA without error.
