Introduce RS232 connectivity to the device using the highly-economic MAX232 Board. It is an interface add-on board designed to connect the built-in MAX232 circuit to a prototype board. An essential for establishing RS232 communication, the MAX232 chip is a dual driver/receiver that includes a capacitive voltage generator to supply TIA/EIA-232-F voltage levels. Each receiver converts TIA/EIA-232-F inputs 1.0-'

  • Based on the Maxim MAX232N dual RS232 driver/receiver
  • Operates at up to 128 Kbit/s
  • Inexpensive solution for adding RS232 connectivity to your device
  • Connection pads compatible with all standard prototyping boards: 2.54mm (0.1") spacing
  • Low supply current: 8 mA
  • Operates from a single 5V power supply
  • Compact board design
  • Includes a strip of male header
  • Saves power for reduced power requirements

Product Details

IC/Module: MAX232N Dual EIA-232 Drivers/Receivers

The integrated MAX232N is a dual EIA-232 driver/receiver that operates from a single 5-V power supply and converts a serial signal from TTL to RS232C standard and vice versa through a built-in voltage generator. The two RS232 drivers interface standard logic level to RS232 levels while the two receivers interface RS232 levels to standard logic levels.

Two Connectors

The MAX232 Board features two connectors: a female connector DB9 and a 6-pin connector. While the former enables connection with devices that use RS232 standard (typically a PC), the latter allows for connection with microcontroller pins intended for serial communication (USART).
