Gadgeteer 485 module schematic doesn't match the picture

So, I’m starting to play with 485 and just noticed that:

a) The 485 gadgeteer module schematic shows it having 1 line buffer (U1).

b) But the image shows it having 2 line buffers (U1 and U2)

Which one is right: Schematic or picture?

What is the purpose of the buffer if the MAX13487 has a state machine to auto switch between RX/TX?

Ref page:

The buffer is only needed on the receive line. The engine mistakenly add one on the transmit line, which is safe but wasted an unneeded buffer.

Did this answer your question?

Yup, that puts me at ease :slight_smile: Thanks Gus!
