3V to 5.5V operation Baud rates up to 250 kbps High-quality SMD components and compact design Connection pads compatible with all standard prototyping boards: 2.54mm (0.1") spacing
The MAX3232 enables true RS232 performance from a 3.0V to 5.5V operating range. It is guaranteed to run at data rates of 250 kbit/s while maintaining RS232 output levels. The board is compact and barely bigger than the DB9 connector. It has high-quality SMD components and prototyping connection pads which enable easy connectivity with your device. This MAX3232 Board has a female DB9 connector for RS232 devices (typically a PC), and a row of six pads to install an interface for connection to a microcontroller system's UART. Nothing is soldered into the pads, so you can add whatever kind of connector you need. A strip of male header pins is included.
The MAX3232 Board can be used in RS232 communication with modems, printers, PC applications, and other devices that use UART communication protocol.
