Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Q: How do I get started with the Sparkfun MAX3232 board?

    A: We’ve taken the SOIC package MAX3232 and broken out all the pins you need to set up your RS232 to TTL connection. We’ve also included the necessary 0.1uF charge pump capacitors. Also remember that because the MAX3232 operates at a broader voltage range than the 232 (3 - 5.5V) you can use this on both your 3.3 and 5V projects! more

  • Q: How do I wire a MAX3232 to Arduino?

    A: In this tutorial you will learn how to communicate with a computer using a MAX3323 single channel RS-232 driver/receiver and a software serial connection on the Arduino. A general purpose software serial tutorial can be found here. Insert the MAX3323 chip in the breadboard. Connect 5V power and ground from the breadboard to 5V power and ground from the microcontroller. Connect pin 15 on the MAX233 chip to ground and pins 16 and 14 - 11 to 5V. If you are using an LED connect it between pin 13 and ground. more

  • Q: Where can I find a MAX3232 circuit schematic?

    A: The driver IC used is MAX3232CSE that is pin to pin equivalent to MAX232 but can also operate at lower voltage at lower capacitor values.The power pins +/- are given on both sides of board which are connected to each other on PCB, You can use any one side of it to power the board.The arrow on PCB indicate the signal flow of serial data.The ‘must have’ board for TTL/RS323 projects! This is the RS232 converter IC that is capable of running at 3V and communicating with 5V logic. Since MAX3232 operates at a broader voltage range than the 232 (3 - 5.5V) you can use this on both your 3.3 and 5V projects! more

  • Q: Is there a MAX3232 pinout diagram?

    A: MAX3232 is basically a nice level shifting circuit designed to convert the +-12V lines from RS-232 into TTL-compatible 5V (232) or 3.0-5.5V (3232) levels. To reach the higher (and lower) voltages, it uses charge pumps and four 0.1 uF (standard MAX232 needs 1.0 uF) capacitors, plus one more for VCC stabilization. Here’s the pinout and logical diagram: more

  • Q: Where can I buy a MAX3232 board?

    A: MAX3232 enables true RS-232 performance from a 3.0V to 5.5V operating range. It is guaranteed to run at data rates of 250 kbit/s while maintaining RS-232 output levels. Board is compact and barely bigger than DB9 connector. It has high quality SMD components and prototyping connection pads which enable easy connectivity with your device. more

  • Q: How do I connect a MAX3232 with Raspberry Pi?

    A: The raspberry pi has a UART interface, with which it can send debug information to a serial console. As a basic step of Embedded Linux Development, let’s see the procedure to connect the Raspberry Pi UART to a computer.You can connect Raspberry pi to a computer using a USB to UART converter. In fact, it is the easiest way and also less risk involved. Note that, the TTL logic levels of Broadcom SOC are Logic0-0v and Logic1-3.3v. So, before purchasing a USB to UART converter, make sure that it supports UART with 3.3v TTL logic levels. more

  • Q: Where can I find a MAX3232 circuit diagram?

    A: There are several low-cost ICs designed to perform this conversion. We used a Maxim MAX3232 device [4], which uses an internal charge pump and external capacitors to generate the higher voltages required for RS-232 from the 3.3V supply. This removes the need for an additional power supply to the ProSpeckz end of the connection and allows a three-wire link to be used (TX, RX and signal ground). The schematic for the conversion circuit is shown in Fig. 3, and is taken from an example in the datasheet. more

  • Q: Can I use a USB adaptor with MAX3232?

    A: USB adaptor circuit using MAX3232 more

  • Q: How do I connect a MAX3232 to a DB9 connector?

    A: The j303 connector (red connector)is in fact a serial port. You can connect a 3.3v adaptor in making the following schema based on a MAX3232: more

  • Q: How do I use a MAX3232 driver with an RS232?

    A: UART Stands for Universal Asynchronous Transmitter Receiver. The function of UART is conversion parallel data (8 bit) to serial data. UART transmit bytes of data sequentially one bit at a time from source and receive the byte of data at the destination by decoding sequential data with control bits. As the entire processes require no clock input from source hence it is termed as asynchronous communication. more

  • Q: How do I get started with a MAX3232 converter?

    A: 3.0V to 5.5V, Low-Power, up to 1Mbps, True RS-232 Transceivers Using Four 0.1µF External Capacitors more
