Automotive specialist Melexis (Nashua, NH), has added the local interconnect network (LIN) bus to its portfolio of devices. The new MLX80030, which comes in a compact SOIC8 package, is 3rd member of the company’s next generation of system basis ICs that enable simple and effective development of LIN slaves. Features include:
- A 0.35µm HV-CMOS process technology for very low current operation.
- The electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) required for single wire bus systems.
- An integrated load current limitation, over temperature shutdown, and 40 V load dump protection.
- Electrostatic discharge (ESD) characteristics that allow it to deal with direct discharges of >20 kV and indirect discharges of >15 KV.
