CAN vs. RS-485: What’s the Difference?

Oct 4 2022

Join Dave and Bob as they explore the similarities and differences between two key serial interface protocols, Controller Area Network (CAN) and RS-485. See both protocols on oscilloscopes using one of our RS-485 interface transceivers and our latest CAN transceiver. Watch as they zap the MAX13054A CAN transceiver shield board with electrostatic discharge (ESD) and a voltage fault to demonstrate the IC’s robust operation.
