LIN Bus Serial Analyzer Development Tool For Automotive Applications

Posted by Industry News on

Microchip LIN Serial Analyzer

The LIN Serial Analyzer development tool enables the user to monitor and communicate to a LIN (Local Interface Network) bus using a Personal Computer (PC). It is a powerful tool that can be used to send messages, monitoring the bus traffic, perform error checks, and filter messages. There are many other features, allowing the user to develop and debug the system implementation.

Many customers need to develop a customized user interface for the LIN communication protocol in a short time and with reduced costs. Microchip provides a Java LIN library API, which gives customers the flexibility to develop their interface. The LIN Analyzer Library Demo supports the development of customized user front-ends to interface with the LIN Analyzer Tool.

The LIN Serial Analyzer software enables a Personal Computer (PC) to communicate with a LIN (Local Interface Network) bus. The PC program uses a graphical user interface to enter and display message frames occurring on the target bus. The LIN Serial Analyzer connects to a Microsoft Windows operating system compatible computer using a USB port. It interfaces to the target network using a three-position, screw-type terminal block.

The Kit Includes

  • LIN Serial Analyzer
  • Mini-B USB Cable
  • PC GUI installation CD-ROM
