Evaluation Module for Transceivers

Evaluation Module for Transceivers

Texas Instruments has launched a module to evaluate its TLINx029-Q1 family of single-channel, local interconnect network (LIN) transceiver ICs. The TLIN2029EVM allows both master and slave mode applications to be evaluated through the use of a single jumper. This jumper connects or disconnects the external 1kΩ pull-up resistor and series diode required in master mode from the LIN bus.

The module includes a low voltage VCC rail that provides the voltage to the pull-up resistors on the received data open drain output and enables control input pins.
