Automotive CAN Transceivers
The CAN (Control Area Network) serial bus with multi-master capabilities was originally developed for use in automobiles with data rates up to 1Mbps as defined by the ISO 11898 International Standard. Because of its ability to function in harsh automotive environment, CAN has found its way into different applications within modern vehicles, like Body, Safety, Powertrain and Infotainment.
Recently the automotive industry newly established the CAN FD (Flexible Data-rate) protocol for faster CAN communication up to 5Mbit/s and CAN PN (Partial Networking) for improved energy efficiency.
Dependent on the respective vehicle network architecture and the related ECU supply path, different transceiver types are used. Infineon Transceivers ensure reliable in-vehicle communication and help minimizing the current consumption and the related CO 2 -emissions at the vehicle level. The Infineon Transceiver products provide the best value by its high performance, ruggedness and reliability.
