Atmel Corp. has unveiled a line-up of control area network (CAN) transceivers aimed at automotive and industrial markets. The ATA6560 and ATA6561 support the latest CAN FD (flexible data rate) standard with data rates up to 5Mb/s and offer an interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus, indicated the company.

Compliant with ISO11898-2, ISO11898-5 and SAEJ2284, the CAN transceiver family offers high electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance. Both the ATA6560 and ATA6561 devices deliver ideal passive behaviour to the CAN bus when the supply voltage is off, while the ATA6561 offers a direct interface to MCUs with 3-5V supply voltages. Various operating modes together with the dedicated fail-safe features make the ATA6560/ATA6561 an excellent choice for all types of high-speed CAN networks, especially in CAN nodes requiring a low-power mode with wake-up capability via the CAN bus. Atmel's low-power CAN transceivers are developed on an advanced process technology that allows further integration of analogue and complex digital functionality.

Atmel's ATA6560/61 feature low EME and high EMI, remote wake-up capability via CAN bus, transmit data (TXD) dominant time-out function and undervoltage detection on VCC and VIO pins. The devices are also CANH/CANL short-circuit and over-temperature protected.

Atmel's ATA6560/61 CAN transceivers are available in mass production in SO8 and DFN8 packaging with wet-able flanks for automated optical solder inspection. Pricing starts at $0.48 each in 10,000-piece quantities.
