Microchip's new High-Speed (HS) CAN transceivers, the MCP2561/2, serve as an interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus. The new transceivers meet CAN specification requirement “GIFT ICT Group Conformance Test Specification V1.0” as verified by C&S Group GmbH, in addition to other global automotive Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements such as “Hardware Requirements for LIN, CAN and FlexRay Interfaces in Automotive Applications,” Version 1.3, May 2012 as verified by IBEE. Customers can have confidence in CAN conformance and high robustness increasing ease of development and system reliability.
The new transceivers provide two device options. The MCP2561 is an HS CAN transceiver in an 8-pin package and features a SPLIT pin. The SPLIT pin helps to stabilize common mode in biased split termination schemes. The MCP2562 is also an HS CAN transceiver available in an 8-pin package and features a Vio pin. The transceivers have a low standby current consumption (<5 µA typical) to help meet automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) low-power budget requirements. Both parts are also available in 8-lead PDIP, SOIC and 3×3 mm DFN (leadless) package types. The transceivers support both Extended (E): −40°C to +125°C and High (H): −40°C to +150°C temperature ranges. The MCP2561/2 CAN transceivers are targeted for a wide range of applications in the automotive market, including power train, body and convenience, diagnostics, safety and security, and the industrial market, including manufacturing, construction and agriculture.
