RS485 click 3.3V carries the SN65HVD12 half-duplex, RS-485 transceiver from Texas Instruments. It is designed for balanced data transmission and complies with EIA standards RS-485 and RS-422. The click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. RS485 5V click communicates with the target microcontroller over UART interface, with additional functionality provided by the PWM pin on the mikroBUS™ line.

SN65HVD12 features

Internal ESD protection circuits protect the transceiver bus terminals against ±16-kV Human Body Model (HBM) electrostatic discharges and ±4-kV electrical fast transients (EFT).

The SN65HVD1x half-duplex family provides internal biasing of the receiver input thresholds for open-circuit, bus-idle, or short-circuit failsafe conditions, and a typical receiver hysteresis of 35 mV

How the click works

There are four screw terminals on the board Those marked with “+” and “-” are RS485 differential high and differential low communication lines. We added two more terminals for VCC and GND reference if needed for further interfacing. Communication with the board is done using simple UART interface.

Jumpers and settings

Designator Name Default Position Default Option Description
J1 PWR. SEL. Left 3.3V Do not touch, not selectable by user
J2 Bias Enable ON
J3 Bias Enable ON
J4 Term. ON

If the board is the first node of the RS485 network, all three jumpers J2-J4 should be placed. If the board is a node in the middle, all jumpers should be removed. If the board is the last node of the RS485 network, place only J4 termination jumper.
