LIN Bus Simulation Device with USB Interface Controlled by Windows Software

Posted by Industry News on

Lipowsky Baby-LIN-II

The Baby-LIN-II by Lipowsky Industrie-Elektronik is a compact system for controlling a LIN BUS network via USB. The PC works as a LIN monitor, LIN Master, or LIN Slave. The system also supports operation in stand-alone mode and allows the execution of continuously running sequences without a PC. In addition, the galvanic isolation guarantees interference-free data transmission.

The scope of delivery includes:

  • Baby-LIN-II Device
  • USB 2.0 cabel, 1.5m (3 ft.), typ A to typ B-mini
  • A 3-pole plug with screw connection (MC 1,5/ 3-ST-3,81)
  • Download license for the LINWorks suite (includes LINWorks PC software, USB drivers, sample files and documentation)

Application examples include:

  • Stand-alone mode with unrestricted programmable command sequences
  • Usable with LINWorks software via USB on a PC
  • Read and write frame data in real-time
  • Supervise the LIN bus in the monitor function without an SDF present
  • Data logging process possible at 100% bus workload

Technical Functionality:

  • Supports LIN bus versions 1.2, 1.3, 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2
  • Galvanically isolated LIN bus interface
  • Simulation of LIN Master and LIN Slave nodes
  • DTL (Diagnostic Transport Layer) support
  • LIN bus controllable via DLL from own programs
  • On-board voltages from 8 - 28 VDC
