Overview

The DLIN is a soft core of the Local Interconnect Network (LIN). This interface is a serial communication protocol, designed primarily to be used in automotive applications. Compared to CAN, LIN is slower, but thanks to its simplicity, is much more cost effective. Our Core is ideal for a communication in intelligent sensors and actuators, where the bandwidth and versatility of CAN is not required. The DLIN core provides an interface between a microprocessor/microcontroller and a LIN bus. It can work as master or slave LIN node, depending on a work mode, determined by the microprocessor/microcontroller. DCD's 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.

Features

  • Conforms with LIN 1.2, LIN 2.1 and LIN 2.2 specification; Automatic LIN Header handling; Automatic Re-synchronization
  • Data rate between 1Kbit/s and 20 Kbit/s; Master and Slave work mode; Time-out detection
  • Break-in-data support; Extended error detection
