For systems that are sharing network capacity while starting, stopping and prioritizing access at the blink of an eye, data transmission speed and reliability are mission critical. Our comprehensive portfolio of CAN and CAN FD solutions includes microcontrollers, microprocessors and digital signal controllers with integrated CAN modules and a variety of external CAN controllers and transceivers for designing high-performance embedded applications. These products draw upon our rich heritage in the automotive industry and our commitment to providing you with easy-to-use development systems, an array of design resources and exceptional technical support as you design next-generation solutions.
Because CAN bus networks are intended to support data exchange amongst safety-critical functions, it is important to implement robust safety measures to reduce the risk of transmitting incorrect data. The safety features available in our CAN transceivers and controllers not only comply with the vigorous standards required for a functionally safe communication network, our proven experience and design support can help minimize your cost and development time.
While cruise control and power windows were key upgrades for an automotive buyer a generation ago, today they are baseline features powered by one of many dozens of electronics control units (ECUs) located throughout the vehicle. The automotive market now demands innovative sensor-driven capabilities, especially to enhance driver safety and optimize engine performance. CAN-driven ECUs are commonly powering:
