  • Patent number: 5153466
    Abstract: A new and improved all monolithic transceiver manufactured on a single semiconductor die and operative from a 5 volt DC power supply. The transceiver meets all of the pulse width and timing requirements of the MIL-STD-1553 transceiver and is operative at high switching speeds and high output current levels to generate bi-phase TX OUT and TX OUT signals used to drive, respectively, two center tapped primary windings of an output transformer. The transmitter includes two dynamically driven data channels which are driven out of phase and in a controlled manner that ensures that one data channel has been completely turned off before the other data channel turns on, thereby maximizing power transfer and operating efficiency while minimizing unnecessary current drain and eliminating current spiking in the output of the transmitter.
