The ST232 is a 2 driver, 2 receiver device following EIA/TIA-232 and V.28 communication standard. It is particularly suitable for applications where ±12V is not available. The ST232 uses a single 5V power supply and only four external capacitors (0.1μF). Typical applications are in: portable computers, low power modems, interfaces translation, battery powered RS-232 system, multi-drop RS-232 networks.
