The development board for the ATA6561 enables users to rapidly carry out prototyping and testing of new CAN designs with the ATA6561 high-speed CAN transceivers.
The ATA6561 is a high-speed CAN transceiver that provides an interface between a controller area network (CAN) protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus. The transceiver is designed for high-speed (up to 5Mbit/s) automotive CAN applica- tions delivering differential transmit and receive capability to (a microcontroller with) a CAN protocol controller. It offers superior electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance, as well as features such as:
• Ideal passive behavior to the CAN bus when the supply voltage is off
• Direct interfacing to microcontrollers with supply voltages from 3V to 5V
