The ST3232E is a 3V powered EIA/TIA-232 and V.28/V.24 communication interfaces with low power requirements, high data-rate capabilities and enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection to ±8 kV using IEC1000-4-2 Contact Discharge and ±15 kV using the Human Body Model. ST3232E has a proprietary low dropout transmitter output stage providing true RS-232 performance from 3 to 5V supplies with a dual charge pump. The charge pump requires only four small 0.1µF standard external capacitors for operations from 3V supply.

The ST3232E has two receivers and two drivers.

The device is guaranteed to run at data rates of 250 kbps while maintaining RS-232 output levels.

Typical applications are Notebook, Subnotebook and Palmtop Computers, Battery Powered Equipment, Hand-Held Equipment, Peripherals and Printers.
