High-Speed CAN Transceiver
Microchip Technology

The MCP2551 is a high-speed CAN, fault-tolerant device that serves as the interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical bus. The MCP2551 provides differential transmit and receive capability for the CAN protocol controller and is fully compatible with the ISO-11898 standard, including 24V requirements. It will operate at speeds of up to 1 Mb/s.


Typically, each node in a CAN system must have a device to convert the digital signals generated by a CAN controller to signals suitable for transmission over the bus cabling (differential output). It also provides a buffer between the CAN controller and the high-voltage spikes that can be generated on the CAN bus by outside sources (EMI, ESD, electrical transients, etc.).


MCP2551 Features


• Supports 1 Mb/s operation

• Implements ISO-11898 standard physical layer requirements

• Suitable for 12V and 24V systems

• Externally-controlled slope for reduced RFI emissions

• Detection of ground fault (permanent dominant) on TXD input

• Power-on reset and voltage brown-out protection

• An unpowered node or brown-out event will not disturb the CAN bus
