LIN Basics and Implementation of the MCC LIN Stack Library on 8-Bit PIC Microcontrollers
Mary Tamar Tan, Brian Bailey, Han Lin
Users new to LIN communication often struggle with the overhead of the high layers of LIN protocol intricacies (e.g., LDF, NCF files). When in fact, the goal is to simply and quickly evaluate LIN MCUs and LIN PHYs hardware with very basic LIN message transmission. To assist with rapid prototyping, the complimentary MCC LIN Code Generator was created. This application note demonstrates how to rapid prototype LIN-related embedded applications using Microchip's MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) on an 8-bit PIC microcontroller.
