In complex automation, building & power control, security, manufacturing, lighting and medical systems, each peripheral system component needs to communicate to a main control unit and to other peripherals via a reliable communication bus. In particular CAN is proven to be the most adequate, reliable and cost efficient communications standard in such kind of industrial applications.
Our industrial CAN transceivers provide proven quality, a reliable track record and high robustness with regards to EMI. ISO compliance is guaranteed.
Our IFX1050G has been optimized for high speed communication providing the highest reliability, whereas the IFX1054G is suited for applications requiring fault tolerance robustness at lower data rates. The IFX1040 provides in addition bus wake up functionality. Our transceiver product portfolio is complemented for low level system requirements and simple communication with the IFX1021 LIN transceiver.
Because of the ever-increasing demand for information exchange between electronic control units
inside modern vehicles, the automotive manufacturers implemented different communication In Vehicle
While FlexRay is covering applications with high data rates or safety relevance , CAN (Controller Area Network) is used in networks where the exchange between modules requires a medium data rate. Complementing these two is the LIN (Local Interconnect Network) protocol-based bus system, which is mainly used for data exchange of comfort related functions or signaling with low data rate requirements.
One of the basic building blocks, common to all FlexRay, CAN and LIN networks, is the physical layer transceiver. The transceiver is the link between the protocol unit, typically in a micro controller, and the network bus cable, embedded in the vehicle wire harness. In addition to transmitting and receiving signals between the micro controller and the network, the transceiver also provides a wide range of protection features as well as fault-diagnosis capability.
Infineon offers a broad product range of automotive transceivers for the different IVN bus segments like FlexRay, High Speed CAN with and without bus wake functionality, low speed CAN as well as LIN.
