The LIN-Bus (Local Interconnect Network) similarly to CAN is a vehicle bus standard or computer networking bus-system used within current automotive network architectures. Contrary to the second one, is a cost-competetive serial communication system designed for specified vehicle electrical networks. Thanks to its price competitiveness, though it's small and slow, LIN is used as a cheap sub-network of a CAN bus to integrate intelligent sensor devices or actuators in today’s cars.
Digital Core Design believe that even though something is small or slow, it has to offer maximal efficiency and ultimate reliability. That's why our DLIN controller supports transmission speed between 1kb/s and 20kb/s, which allows to transmit and receive LIN messages compatible to LIN 1.3, LIN 2.1 and the newest LIN 2.2.
