The MCP2561/2FD, as an interface between a CAN (Controller Area Network) protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus, these transceivers can serve both the CAN and CAN FD protocols. This product family not only helps automotive and industrial manufacturers with today’s CAN communication needs, but also provides a path for the newer CAN FD networks that are increasingly in demand.
In-vehicle networking growth continues to be driven by the need for electronic monitoring and control. As application features in power train, body and convenience, diagnostics and safety increase, more Electronic Control Units (ECUs) are being added to existing CAN buses, causing automotive OEMs to become bandwidth limited. In addition, the end-of- line programming time for ECUs is on the rise due to more complex application programs and calibration, which raises production line costs. The emerging CAN FD bus protocol solves these issues by increasing the maximum data rate while expanding the data field from 8 data bytes up to 64 data bytes.
With their robustness and industry-leading features, including data rates of up to 8 Mb/s, Microchip’s MCP2561/2FD transceivers enable customers to implement and realize the benefits of CAN FD. These new transceivers have one of the industry’s lowest standby current consumption (<5 μA typical), helping meet ECU low-power budget requirements. Additionally, these devices support operation in the -40C to 150C temperature range, enabling usage in harsh environments.
