LIN2.0 bus transceiver provides 8-kV ESD protection

Heilbronn, Germany—Atmel 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.

Pricing: $0.99 each for 10,000-piece quantities.
Availability: Sampling in Pb-free QFN20 packages.
Datasheets: ATA6622, ATA6624 and ATA6626.
