Product Details

The ADM3051 is a controller area network (CAN) physical layer transceiver allowing a protocol layer CAN controller to access the physical layer bus. The ADM3051 complies with the ISO 11898 standard. It is capable of running at data rates up to 1 Mbps.

The device has current-limiting and thermal shutdown features to protect against output short circuits and situations where the bus may be shorted to ground or power terminals in 24 V bus power systems. The part is fully specified over the industrial temperature range of −40°C to +125°C and is available in an 8-lead SOIC package.

Three operating modes are available: high speed, slope control, and standby. Pin 8 (RS) is used to select the operating mode. The low current standby mode can be selected by applying a logic high to RS.

The device can be set to operate with slope control to limit EMI by connecting RS with a resistor to ground to modify the rise and fall of slopes. This mode facilitates the use of unshielded cables. Alternatively, disabling slope control by connecting RS to ground allows high speed operation. Shielded cables or other measures to control EMI are necessary in this mode.
