Evaluation Boards for RS-485-Based ApplicationsBourns Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced the availability of two new evaluation boards for RS-485-based applications. Using Bourns TBU High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), GDTs, TVS diodes and MOV products, the new boards were developed as a design resource that streamlines evaluating circuit protection on RS-485 serial device ports. To meet the required industry standards on RS-485 port interfaces, the new boards provide two different evaluation approaches. The Bourns RS-485EVALBOARD1 includes two Bourns TBU High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), two Bourns fast-acting GDTs and two Bourns TVS diodes. The Bourns RS-485EVALBOARD2 uses Bourns TBU High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), MOVs and TVS products.

“Bourns designed the evaluation boards to help developers more quickly and easily determine the circuit protection required for their applications that use RS-485 serial device ports,” said Ian Doyle, product line manager of semiconductor products at Bourns, Inc. “The evaluation boards demonstrate that with Bourns TBU HSP solutions, we are able to offer enhanced performance features over competing technologies in terms of increased surge and transient protection levels on RS-485 ports that also enable an entire circuit protection solution to fit into a smaller PCB area.”
