    MAX485 modifications. Need help to find out what does it mean.

    Hello everyone,

    I've noticed that MAX485CSA appeared on the market with additional characters situated just after CSA. Like MAX485CSA+, MAX485CSA+T

    CSA -it's clear from MAX485 manual. That means SO8, 0..+70; https://datasheets.maximintegrated.c...487-MAX491.pdf

    I've tried to find out what does mean '+T'. There's no any definitons in manuals related to this chip.

    Thank you!

    I think (not sure) it specifies the carrier type: no suffix=tube, T suffix=reel. The sign+ means ROHS compliant

    Hi,

    https://www.maximintegrated.com/en/p...5.html/tb_tab3
    Symbols in part number: + Lead-free, RoHS compliant - Not qualified as lead-free RoHS # RoHS compliant, lead exemption
    "T" = REEL
    (Without "T" may be tube. Don´t ask me why )

    it appears to be T = tape. The package standard. The tape winds around a reel. Further, to positioner at soldering automat. It has nothing to do with electronic features of IC.
    It uses when you need to solder thousand chips/components a day, for example.

    Thanks to all!
