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

Teensy 4.0 CAN FD And LIN Bus Breakout Board

Teensy 4.0 CAN FD And LIN Bus Breakout Board

This is a CAN FD breakout board for use with the Teensy 4.0 (included in the scope of delivery). It has an onboard 5 VDC regulator with reverse voltage protection and a CAN FD transceiver. The Microchip MCP2004A chip provides the LIN Bus connection. The Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system compatible with Arduino software and libraries. It comes with a minimal footprint, capable of implementing many projects. All programming is accomplished via the onboard USB port.

Quick Prototyping by Copperhill Technologies

As they say, a picture tells a thousand words. The above image demonstrates a predicament we encountered a few days ago. The enclosure we are using for our SAE J1939 Gateway And Data Logger With Real-Time Clock is not available at the moment, and it might take a few more months before new supplies arrive. At [...]

Any CAN Bus, SAE J1939, NMEA 2000 Development Requires the Right Testing Tools

I want to reiterate a point made in a previous post ("A Beginner's Guide to SAE J1939 Embedded Software Development"): When developing and testing your CAN Bus application, may it be Classical CAN, CAN FD, CANopen, SAE J1939, or NMEA 2000, you need to connect your device to a functional network. One solitary node connected to your [...]

SAE J1939 Data Traffic Generator For Diesel Engine Network Simulation

I am writing this post in response to multiple inquiries from newcomers to the SAE J1939 technology. Most questions are in the nature of "Can your device simulate any PGN, for instance, engine speed in rpm?" or "Can your device simulate a 2014 Tonka Flex diesel engine?" The short answer is yes, but things are [...]
