Are you designing with low-cost system networking in mind? We provide stand-alone Local Interconnect Network (LIN) transceivers along with System Basis Chips (SBCs) that include integrated transceivers with voltage regulators. Our System-In-Package (SIP) solutions include an integrated microcontroller with the LIN transceiver and voltage regulator in a single package.

One of our key design partners, IHR GmbH, has developed LIN-compliant drivers for the 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).
