MAX202E–MAX213E,
MAX232E/MAX241E

±15kV ESD-Protected, 

5V RS-232 Transceivers 

EVALUATION KIT AVAILABLE

General Description

The MAX202E-MAX213E, MAX232E, and MAX241E are a
family of RS-232 and V.28 transceivers with high ±15kV
ESD HBM protection and integrated charge pump circuit-
ry for single +5V supply operation. The various combina-
tions of features are outlined in the 

Selector Guide. The

drivers and receivers for all ten devices meet all EIA/TIA-
232E and CCITT V.28 specifications at data rates up to
120kbps when loaded.

The MAX211E/MAX213E/MAX241E are available in 28-
pin SO and SSOP packages. The MAX202E/MAX232E
come in 16-pin TSSOP, narrow SO, wide SO, and DIP
packages. The MAX203E comes in a 20-pin DIP/SO
package, and needs no external charge-pump capaci-
tors. The MAX205E comes in a 24-pin wide DIP pack-
age, and also eliminates external charge-pump
capacitors.
