N OR NS† PACKAGE
† The NS package is only available left-end taped and
reeled (order device SN75ALS173 NSLE).
The SN75ALS173 is a monolithic quadruple differential line receiver with 3-state outputs. It is designed to meet
the requirements of ANSI Standards EIA/TIA-422-B, EIA/TIA-423-B, RS-485, and several ITU
recommendations. Advanced low-power Schottky technology provides high speed without the usual power
penalty. The four receivers have an ORed pair of enables in common. Either G high or G low enables all of the
receivers. The device features high input impedance, input hysteresis for increased noise immunity, and input
sensitivity of ± 200 mV over a common-mode input voltage range of – 12 V to 12 V.
The SN75ALS173 is characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C.
