ROHM Semiconductor has introduced transceiver ICs designed to switch between master/slave modes using local interconnect network (LIN) or external pins. These ICs feature low electromagnetic emission (EME), high electro-magnetic immunity (EMI), thermal shutdown and a terminator. The LIN transceiver ICs are suitable for systems which need LIN master and slave protocol.
The clock extension peripheral interface (CXPI) ICs switch between master/slave mode using external pins. These transceivers have been designed for automotive networks.
