These devices only implement a single RS485/RS422 transmitter and receiver.
Thus except for reducing the number of IC types they are not 
particularly useful for this application.
However they do operate over a 3V to 5V power supply range.
They are also only available in SMT packages which can be inconvenient 
for prototyping.
