System-in-Package (SiP) Solutions

The Microchip multi-chip LIN System-in-Package (SiP) is designed for LIN-bus node applications demanding for higher levels of integration and lower costs coupled with an awareness of complete system solution. The Microchip SiPs incorporate:

  • LIN 1.3, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.2A and SAE J2602-2 compliant LIN transceiver
  • Built-in voltage regulator - 3.3V or 5V output voltages and output current up to 85mA
  • Programmable Window Watchdog via external resistor
  • AVR® , ARM Cortex M0+ microcontroller (with peripheral touch controller) or PIC microcontroller in single package

Some SiPs have all pins of the LIN-SBC and the microcontroller are bonded out to provide customers the same flexibility for their applications as they have when using discrete parts. Other have some internal connections in order to have more features but smaller package.

One of Microchip Technology’s key design partners, IHR GmbH, has developed LIN-compliant drivers for Microchip’s PIC16F, PIC18F and PIC24F families of microcontrollers.

IHR is one of the leading manufacturers of diagnosis and emulation tools, as well as gateways for the automotive industry. IHR GmbH is also an associated member of the LIN consortium and has been performing LIN conformance tests for LIN 1.3, LIN 2.0 and LIN 2.1 test specifications.

To further aid the user in configuring the driver for their end application, IHR has developed a LIN Configuration Tool. This tool helps automate the process of generating LIN-compliant code which contains bus configuration information, node information and signal data using the LIN Description File (LDF).
