The SN65HVDA1040B-Q1 device meets or exceeds the specifications of the ISO 11898 standardfor use in applications employing a controller area network (CAN). As a CAN transceiver, thisdevice provides differential transmit capability to the bus and differential receive capability toa CAN controller at signaling rates up to 1 megabit per second (Mbps). The signaling rate of a lineis the number of voltage transitions that are made per second, expressed in the units bps (bits persecond).
The device is designed for operation in especially harsh environments and includes manydevice protection features such as undervoltage lock out (UVLO), over-temperature thermal shutdown,wide common-mode range, and loss of ground protection. The bus pins are also protected againstexternal cross-wiring, shorts to –27 V to 40 V, and voltage transients according to ISO 7637. Thedevice is qualified for use in automotive applications.
