The rapid, widespread use of 3.3V logic circuits complicates the selection of RS232 interface circuits. The optimum choice of an interface circuit should be based upon several application dependent factors:

1) Logic circuitry connected to interface chip

2) Power supply voltages available

3) Power consumption constraints

4) Serial interface environment

5) Mouse driving requirements

As Figure 396.1 illustrates, 5V interface circuits cannot be used to directly connect to 3.3V CMOS logic circuits. The receiver output level will forward ...
