Industry’s Smallest and Fastest USB UARTs
I nterface

Single, Dual, and Quad-Channel UARTs with Industry’s Smallest Package Choices, plus Optimized Software Drivers Deliver Superior Design Options
The XR21V1410 (V1410), XR21V1412 (V1412), and XR21V1414 (V1414) are enhanced 1-channel, 2-channel and 4-channel Universal Asynchronous Receiver and Transmitter (UART) with a USB interface. The USB interface is fully compliant to Full Speed USB 2.0 specification that supports 12 Mbps USB data transfer rate. The USB interface also supports USB suspend, resume and remote wakeup operations. The V141x operates from an internal 48 MHz clock therefore no external crystal/oscillator is required like previous generation UARTs. With the fractional baud rate generator, any baud rate can accurately be generated using the internal48MHz clock. The large 128-byte TX FIFO and 384-byte RX FIFO of the V141x helps to optimize the overall data throughput for various applications. The Automatic Transceiver Direction control feature simplifies both the hardware and software for half-duplex RS-485 applications. The multi-drop(9-bit) mode with automatic half-duplex transceiver control feature further simplifies typical multidropRS-485 applications. The V141x operates from a single 2.97 to 3.63 voltpower supply and has 5V tolerant inputs. Virtual COM port drivers for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and CE, as well as Linux and Mac are supported for the XR21V1410, XR21V1412 and XR21V1414.

The LT®3596 is a 60V step-down LED Driver. It achieves 10,000:1 digital PWM dimming at 100Hz with fast NPN current sources driving up to 10 LEDs in each channel. 100:1 LED dimming can also be done with analog control of the CTRL1-3 pin. The step-down switching frequency is programmable between 200kHz and 1MHz and is synchronizable to an external clock. The LT3596 also provides maximum LED brightness while adhering to manufacturers’ specifications for thermal derating. The derate temperature is programmed by placing a negative temperature coefficient (NTC) resistor on the master control pin. The LT3596 adaptively controls VOUT in order to achieve optimal efficiency. Other features include: 1.5% LED current matching between channels, open LED reporting, shorted LED pin protection and reporting, programmable LED current and programmable temperature protection.

With Nu Horizons Education and Development Solutions


Portal is a monthly publication containing new products, technologies and development tools available from Nu Horizons leading suppliers. Portal is availabe both in print and on the web. Sign up online to receive your copy, be notified of upcoming issues or to request samples of the products found inside.


LabCam delivers online training opportunities in a way that recognizes the value of engineers’ time. As easily as You Tube® videos, engineers can quickly load and watch videos from industry leaders consisting of insights on products, evaluation kit overviews, end-user applications and more. Each tutorial is up to ten minutes in length and features technology experts, CEOs and/ or peers introducing new solutions or explaining integral aspects of an important product, solution or application. This free value-added program is packaged for short, informative and high quality distance learning.

Nu Horizons is proud to present our education and training program, which offers engineers the opportunity to participate in technical seminars conducted by experts focused on the latest technologies from our leading suppliers. This program provides higher velocity learning to help minimize start-up time to quickly begin your design process utilizing the latest development tools, software and products. Check online for the latest seminar schedule.


Online Learning Center

Nu Horizons Online Learning Center is designed to provide a complete training experience for engineers — without having to leave the office. New supplier trainings are posted twice a month and range from new product overviews to in-depth technical training and potential design implementations. These live trainings are recorded and archived for your viewing convenience.

Application Notes

In order to simplify the design process, Nu Horizons has created a series of application notes designed to guide engineers through the process of interfacing different devices together. Using a detailed step-by-step approach, these design guides identify key elements in the design process. Topics in the application notes are organized by design task and each topic is a stand-alone section, with a short introduction or overview, followed by the step-by-step design guidelines. All steps include a sufficient level of detail to provide the designer with relevant information to proceed quickly and easily from start to finish.

Development Tools

Nu Horizons offers a wide range of development / evaluation boards, tools and kits featuring the latest technology from the most trusted suppliers in the industry. Visit the development tool section of our website for a variety of solutions all aimed at providing a low-cost solution for designers to accelerate a product’s time-to-market.
