SummaryRS-485 has been an industrial workhorse because of its robustness and reliability.  Initially used as a communication network in laboratory instrumentation, RS-485 can be found in applications ranging from building automation to traffic monitoring systems. As the use of RS-485 grew, demand increased for a higher output voltage swing, a wider common-mode range and increased tolerance to electrostatic discharges. There was also a need for greater stand-off capability or protection agai ...
At the 2015 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), nanoelectronics research center imec, in collaboration with Tyndall National Institute, the University of Leuven (KULeuven) and the Ghent University, demonstrated a 4x20Gb/s wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) hybrid CMOS silicon photonics transceiver, paving the way to cost-effective, high-density single-mode optical fiber links.Hybrid CMOS silicon photonics transceivers, transmitting and receiving data over single-mode optic ...
