LIN Bus IC
The MCP201 is a single-chip LIN (Local Interconnect Network) bus interface transceiver with an integrated voltage regulator. The 8 pin MCP201 devices features an on-board 5 volt ± 5% voltage regulator with a maximum output current of 50 milliamperes and has the capability to provide higher current output capability with an external series pass transistor. It supports a baud rate up to 20 kb and is available in an extended temperature range ( 40°C to +125°C). The device provides thermal and short circuit protection as well as protection against loss of ground and load dumps up to 40 volts. CPU, bus activity, and local wake-up features are also included.
