Seamless Solutions for LIN 2001-01-0065

Today's body and convenience applications in general directly control actuators and sensors from a single central electronic control unit (ECU). Future systems will be made of subsystem-clusters communicating via a local Class/A communication bus. This enables modular system design to reduce system complexity. For these types of new distributed applications the LIN bus is currently the most promising communication protocol.
To allow a seamless migration from existing centralized to these next generation clustered system developers require software and hardware products for a homogenous and transparent LIN bus communication.
Within this paper Infineons presents its new LIN solution package:
  • details on Infineons newly developed software building blocks allowing seamless customer specific LIN implementations;
  • Infineon Technologies new family of LIN line drivers supporting smart wake-up from low power mode and smart power supply control;
  • details on the line driver circuitries, configurable SW building blocks, EMC results, and achievable system performance are disclosed.
