Product Details

The EVAL-ADM3054EBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of the ADM3054 isolated CAN transceiver. The evaluation board allows all of the input and output functions to be exercised without the need for external components. Screw terminal blocks provide convenient connections for logic signals and power. The main device on the evaluation board, the ADM3054, is a controller area network (CAN) physical layer transceiver with integrated digital isolation, allowing a protocol layer CAN controller to access the physical layer bus. The ADM3054 complies with the ISO 11898 standard. It is capable of running at data rates of up to 1 Mbps. The evaluation board has separate ground and power planes for the logic side and the bus side. This allows evaluation of the isolation capability of the ADM3054, which employs Analog Devices, Inc., iCoupler® technology to combine a 3-channel isolator and a CAN transceiver into a single, 16-lead wide body SOIC package. The power is isolated between a single 3.3 V or 5 V supply on VDD1, the logic side, and a single 5 V supply provided on VDD2, the bus side. Loss of power on the bus side (VDD2) can be detected by an integrated VDD2SENSE signal.
