CAN Bus Shield for Arduino, Mbed Platform With Fault-Tolerant MAX33040E CAN Transceiver

Posted by Industry News on

maxim integrated - MAX33040ESHLD Evaluation Kit for the MAX33040E CAN Bus Transceiver

The MAX33040Eshld shield evaluation kit by maxim integrated represents a demonstration and development platform for the MAX33040E CAN Bus transceiver. It serves as a standalone evaluation board and the Mbed or Arduino platform to communicate with a CAN Bus network. The board features test points to access critical signal pins of the transceiver. The MAX14931 digital isolator is used as a level translator with a 1.71 VDC to 5.5 VDC supply range which also feeds the micro-controller. The onboard microSD card socket supports OBD-II (vehicle diagnostics) applications.

The MAX33040E/MAX33041E are +3.3 VDC Controller Area Network (CAN) transceivers with integrated protection for industrial applications. These devices possess extended ±40V fault protection on CAN_H and CAN_L for equipment where overvoltage protection is required. They also incorporate high ±40 kV ESD HBM and an input common-mode range (CMR) of ±25V on CAN_H and CAN_L, exceeding the ISO 11898-2 CAN Standard of -2V to +7V. This makes these parts well suited for applications enduring moderate electrical noise, influencing the ground levels between two nodes or systems. The transceiver features a shutdown pin and a multifunction standby pin.

Key Features

  • Easy Evaluation of the MAX33040E CAN Bus Transceiver
  • I/O Interface Compatibility from 1.71 VDC to 5.5 VDC
  • Proven PCB Layout
  • Mbed™/Arduino® Platform +
  • Fully Assembled and Tested

Galvanically Isolated CAN Bus Transceivers Protect Networks Against Destructive Energy

High noise levels on a CAN bus network have the potential to destroy CAN bus transceivers. This noise originates mainly from two sources, ground loops and electrical line surges.Protecting a network against this destructive energy requires the galvanic isolation of the CAN bus system from other local node circuitry. For more information on Controller Area [...]
