Chandler, Ariz.Microchip Technology Inc. announced the MCP2021 and MCP2022 (MCP202X) LIN/SAE J2602 transceivers.
The devices are 3rd party-LIN/J2602 approved, OEM approved, and AEC-Q100 certified to meet the stringent requirements of global automotive manufacturers worldwide. The transceivers include built-in voltage regulators and are compliant with the LIN Bus 2.0/2.1 and SAE J2602 standards, as well as the previous-generation LIN 1.X standards.
With their built-in voltage regulator, the MCP202X transceivers reduce the number of external components needed, which increases system reliability and reduces overall design size. Low power consumption in operational and standby modes (115 and 16 micro Amperes, respectively) makes the MCP202X transceivers suitable for non ignition-switched applications, and helps to extend battery life.
The MCP2021 transceiver is available in 8-pin SOIC, PDIP and 4 mm x 4 mm DFN packages and the MCP2022 transceiver is available in 14-pin SOIC, TSSOP and PDIP packages.
