The MikroE LIN Board connects your development system to LIN (Local Interconnect Network). The board has an MCP201 LIN transceiver with a voltage regulator that supports baud rates up to 20 Kbaud. The transceiver facilitates a physical interface between an MCU and a LIN half-duplex bus. The board receives data from the development system via UART communication and converts it to be sent further through the LIN network. The board also provides a half-duplex, bi-directional communication interface between a microcontroller and a serial network bus. It converts CMOS/TTL logic levels to LIN logic levels and vice versa. It is designed to operate a 5V power supply only. This voltage can be used to power a device through another screw terminal. Using a third screw terminal, it connects to the LIN. The LIN features one master and up to 16 slave devices. It has jumpers, which are used to set master/slave mode and normal/alternate slope mode.
The LIN Board is an ideal choice for use in automotive and industrial applications.
This was an amazing service, kept informed with the whole ordering, tracking and delivery. Highly recommended !
Thank you Wayne. I wish you well with your project.
