Holt Integrated Circuits, a supplier of data bus components for commercial and military avionics, has announced independent validation of its CAN controller family at C&S group in Germany.
C&S group GmbH, an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited test house, is the industry recognized authority for validation of CAN controllers according to protocol specification ISO 11898. The validation was performed to test specification ISO 16845:2004. In addition, C&S group performed additional conformance tests not covered by the original ISO test specification.
Validation of Holt's CAN controller at C&S group guarantees conformance and correct protocol response when operating within a CAN network. Its HI-5110 CAN controller is the industry's first to integrate the analog transceiver on the same chip as the digital protocol engine.
This provides a compact single-chip interface between the physical bus and upper layer protocols such as DeviceNet and CANopen. Other features include deeper FIFOs, a flexible frame filtering scheme tailored to DeviceNet applications and short-circuit survival to ±58V. A protocol-only version, HI-5111, is also available, as are development kits, standalone transceivers and software. The devices are available in -40°C to +85°C and -55°C to +125°C temperature ranges and are offered in 18 pin SOIC or compact 7mm x 7mm 44-pin QFN packages (HI-5113).
