MAX14878/79/80 increases uptime with ±54 V fault protection and industry-leading ±15 kV ESD
Designers can ensure robust communication and improve uptime for industrial systems with the MAX14878, MAX14879, and MAX14880 2.75 kV and 5 kV family of isolated controller area network (CAN) transceivers from Maxim Integrated Products.
Nowadays, CAN is widely deployed in various industrial applications. Operators face several challenges, as they require integrated isolation and a robust interface to withstand noisy environments. In addition, they risk communication failures through faults/shorts on the transceiver inputs, system robustness against electrostatic discharge (ESD) strikes, and large ground shifts in industrial environments.
The family of high-speed transceivers integrates up to 5 kV integrated galvanic isolation with fault protection and ±15 kV Human Body Model (HBM) ESD to increase uptime in harsh and noisy environments. They operate up to the maximum high-speed CAN data rate of 1 Mbps and feature ±54 V fault protection on receiver inputs. Available in industry-compatible pin-outs, the transceivers are packaged in a wide-body 16-pin SOIC package with 8 mm of creepage and clearance and operate over the –40 °C to +125 °C temperature range.
