  • Sorry to be pedantic, but RS485 is NOT a protocol, it is an electrical spec for a multidrop capable differential communication interface, which the MAX481 implements. Any number of protocols can and are run over RS485 - master/slave, TDMA, CSMACD, … LinkSprite may have a protocol they like to run over this, but I haven’t looked. Achieving those performance numbers requires great care w/ termination and cabling - reflections are not your friend. Thanks.

No public wish lists :(
