Heated and cooled seats can provide comfort to occupants throughout the vehicle in times of inclement weather. Heating is normally accomplished via heating elements placed in the seats while passive cooling is performed with the use of fans that provide air circulation throughout the seating material.
The operation of the heated and cooled seats in normally managed via the LIN bus and is accomplished by a small, cost-effective microcontroller that controls MOSFETs driving heating elements and cooling fans. We offer cost-effective components to help you design an efficient, flexible embedded control system for various seating configurations.
The Automotive Networking Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for our 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers targeting CAN and LIN network related applications.
The LIN Serial Analyzer development tool enables the user to monitor and communicate to a LIN bus using a PC. This powerful tool can be used to send messages, monitor the bus traffic, perform errors checks and filter messages.
