Evaluation Kits Serve µModule Transceiver App Developement
Multi-channel electronics distributor Newark, part of global Premier Farnell, announces that it is exclusively offering Linear Technology's Isolator µModule Transceiver evaluation kits for same-day shipping at http://www.newark.com/linear-technology.
The DC1503A evaluation kit supports Linear Technology's LTM2881 and the DC1554A supports the LTM2882. Both boards are available in either 3.3V or 5V.
A Linear Technology engineer is available to answer product questions and provide technical support for these products at element14, Premier Farnell’s popular global engineering resource and community. This is in addition to the technical support Newark offers 24 hours a day, Monday-Friday at www.newark.com.
The LTM2881 is a complete 2500VRMS galvanically isolated, full duplex RS485/RS422 ?Module transceiver with integrated 1W isolated power that requires no external components. Up to 62% efficiency is achievable, with surplus power available at a 5V regulated output. Additional features include integrated pin-selectable 120-Ohm termination, along with a dedicated logic supply pin and spare isolated logic channel.
The LTM28822500VRMS galvanically isolated dual RS232 ?Module transceiver with integrated 1W isolated power and also requires no external components. Up to 65% efficiency is achievable, with surplus power available at a 5V regulated output. The device meets RF and magnetic field immunity test requirements per European standard EN550024.
The isolator ?Module technology is ideal for breaking ground loops, and for systems with large ground-to-ground differentials and common mode transients. Superior common mode rejection of up to 30kV/?s is achievable, while continuing to communicate through the event.
