Controller Area Network (CAN) is a robust multi master-master, differential signaling, serial communications bus specified by the ISO 11898 family of standards. TI’s industry-leading transceivers solve specialized networking requirements for various applications and power supply systems, providing solutions for 5 Volt and 3 Volt operation as well as CAN FD (Flexible Data rates) and up to ±70-V Bus Fault Protection; simplifying complex CAN bus networked systems. TI CAN transceivers also support higher layer protocols such as CANopen (EN 50325-4), DeviceNet, SAEJ1939, ISO11783, and many others. TI also has a wide offering of Local Interconnect Network (LIN) transceivers which support standards such as ISO/DIS 17987, LIN 2.1, LIN 2.2A, Most ECL, SAEJ2602 and ISO9141 (K-Line) for both 12-V battery and 24-V battery systems. The devices are up to 100-kbps receive capable for node programming devices and include optional features LIN Dominant State Timeout and up to ±58-V Bus Fault Protection.
