Holt Integrated Circuits (Mission Viejo, CA) has announced the introduction of a family of CAN transceivers capable of operating in temperatures from −55°C to 200°C. The devices are ARINC 825 / ISO 11898-5 compliant and are targeted at high-temperature avionics and industrial applications such as aircraft braking systems, engine controls, and down-hole drilling. Additional features include:
- 2 modes of operation: Normal Mode and Standby Mode.
- A SPLIT pin to give an output reference voltage of VDD/2.
- A TXD dominant time-out feature to protect the bus from being driven into a permanent dominant state if the TXD pin becomes permanently low due to application failure.
