RS232 to TTL Converter (MAX232) is widely used in the world of microcontrollers. It basically allows shifting levels between a TTL signal (0 - 5 V) and a RS232 signal (15 V - -15 V).
It’s built around the MAX232 IC, which is designed specifically for that purpose, needing only four external capacitors to generate a higher voltage internally.
- Operating Voltage: 3V to 5.5V.
- Can work with 5V and 3.3V logic devices.
- Operating current: 8mA.
- Two Drivers and Two Receivers.
- Operating speed: 120kbit/s.
- Package Type :DIP16 pin.
