The LIN is a soft core of the Local Interconnect Network (LIN). This interface is a serial communication protocol, primarily designed to be used in automotive applications. Compared to the CAN, The LIN is slower, but thanks to its simplicity, it is much more cost effective. Our Core is ideal for communication in intelligent sensors and actuators, where the bandwidth and versatility of the CAN is not required. The LIN core provides an interface between a microprocessor / microcontroller and LIN bus. It can work as a master or slave LIN node, depending on a work mode determined by the microprocessor / microcontroller. This controller supports transmission speed between 1 and 20kb/s, which allows it to transmit and receive LIN messages compatible to LIN 1.3., LIN 2.1, and the newest 2.2 specification
Conforms with LIN 1.3, LIN 2.1 and LIN 2.2 specification.
