LT1237 - 5V RS232 Transceiver with Advanced Power Management and One Receiver Active in Shutdown

The LT®1237 is an advanced low power three driver, five receiver RS232 transceiver. Included on the chip is a shutdown pin for reducing supply current near zero. During shutdown one receiver remains active to detect incoming RS232 signals, for example, to wake up a system. The LT1237 is fully compliant with all EIA RS232 specifications. New ESD structures on the chip allow the LT1237 to survive multiple ±15kV strikes, eliminating the need for costly TransZorbs® on the RS232 line pins. The LT1237 operates in excess of 120kbaud even driving heavy capacitive loads. Two shutdown modes allow the driver outputs to be shut down separately from the receivers for more versatile control of the RS232 interface. During shutdown, drivers and receivers assume a high impedance state.
