User-Configurable CAN to LIN Gateway Can Act As A Bi-Directional CAN-LIN Bridge Or Remote I/O Module

Posted by Industry News on

Mach Systems CAN-LIN Gateway ECU

The CAN-LIN Gateway ECU by Mach Systems is an electronic control unit with two CAN/CAN FD channels, a LIN Bus port, and various multi-purpose digital/analog inputs and outputs.

The control unit is completely configurable and can operate as a stand-alone data converter between a CAN/CAN FD and a LIN bus network or remote I/O modules to connect vehicle sensors and actuators to CAN and LIN systems. The control unit supports both SAE J1939 and raw CAN protocols, and it adequately fits mobile and stationary applications in harsh automotive and industrial environments.

An ECU Configurator PC application supports a useful configuration of the ECU over the CAN bus.

The user can set the ECU mode, communication channel parameters, inter-channel frame conversion (frame mappings), and I/O mappings.

An onboard non-volatile memory stores all setup parameters.

The CAN-LIN Gateway is available in several variants that offer combinations of single-CAN / dual-CAN (CAN FD is supported), with or without CAN termination, and automatic wake-up and sleep based on CAN network activity.


  • Data conversion between CAN, CAN FD and LIN networks
  • One CAN channel
  • One optional CAN FD channel
  • One LIN channel
  • SAE J1939 support
  • Configurable frame and data routing between channels
  • Up to seven multi-purpose inputs and outputs with current measurement
  • Configurable I/O mapping onto CAN or LIN frame data
  • PC tool for easy configuration
  • Waterproof automotive-grade ECU
  • Suitable for 12 VDC and 24 VDC systems
  • ECE-R10 (E1) approval
  • Customization on request
