Heilbronn, GermanyAtmel Corp. has started to sample the ATA6622, ATA6624 and ATA6626 LIN system basis chips (SBCs), which comply with the LIN2.0 standard.
Compared to stand-alone LIN transceivers, system basis chips such as the ATA6622, ATA6624 and ATA6626 are highly integrated and include a voltage regulator plus a watchdog. The ATA6622, ATA6624 and ATA6626 are designed with Atmel's high-voltage BCD-on-SOI (SMARTIS) process and are optimized for operations up to 40-V for applications in harsh environments.
Due to the advantages of SOI technology, the ATA6622, ATA6624 and ATA6626 can achieve ESD protection of more than 8-kV. Applications include automotive comfort applications such as door modules, seat control or intelligent sensors, and powertrain applications such as engine control systems.
