The XR33193, XR33194, and XR33195 are a high performance RS-485/RS-422 driver family offered in a tiny TSOT23 package designed to meet the increasing system requirements found in today’s performance serial communication applications. These standalone drivers operate off a single 3.3V supply and meet RS-485 and RS-422 standards for balanced RS-485 and RS-422 serial communications networks.
The driver family offers several speed options to maximize performance in different applications. The XR33193 and XR33194 have slew limited outputs for reduced EMI and for error free communication over long or improper/unterminated data cables or multi-drop applications with unterminated stubs. The XR33195 driver operates at data rates up to 20Mbps with tight skew and prop delay spec’s required by demanding high speed applications. All parts in the XR33193/94/95 driver family operate over the extended temperature range of -40°C to 125°C.
The XR33193/94/95 driver family is protected by short-circuit detection as well as thermal shutdown and will maintain a high impedance state in shutdown or when powered off. The driver family also includes hot swap circuitry to protect against false transitions on the bus during power-up or live insertion.
For companion standalone RS-485/RS-422 receivers in tiny TSOT23 packages see our XR33180/81/83/84 product datasheet.

Frequently Asked Questions
For RS-232 it is 50 feet (15 meters), or the cable length equal to a capacitance of 2500 pF, at a maximum transmission rate of 19.2kbps. When we reduce the baud rate, it allows for longer cable length. For Example:
Baud Rate (bps)
Maximum RS-232 Cable Length (ft)

Notice the status column and the “Show obsolete parts” link:
A legend tells you the definition of the different statuses. Click on the “Show obsolete parts” link to see EOL or OBS part numbers along with the Active part numbers:
Another method to find out if a part is OBS or EOL is to click on SUPPORT:
And then Product Change Notifications
Type the part into the search, and click on one of the part numbers from the drop down menu. Then you can look for the Product Discontinuation Notice, which generally is at the top of the list, for example:
If you see this, it tells you that this particular orderable part has been discontinued and when the last order date is, or was. If you click on the file, then you can view the notice we sent about this if you purchased the part in the recent past. It may also advise of a replacement part. When an orderable part first becomes discontinued, Product Discontinuation Notices are sent are sent to those who have purchased the parts in the recent past, if purchased directly, with a dated opportunity to place a last order.
