The first system basis chip with integrated CAN FD controller by TI
TCAN4550-Q1 reaches data-rate flexibility and high-bandwidth needed at in-vehicle networks. In contrast to previous expensive and time-consuming methods of expanding or upgrading the functionality of CAN FD, the new SBC provides designers with comfort maintenance of present architecture, including upgrading the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and designs of automotive gateways.
TCAN4550-Q1 - Functional Diagram
The new CAN FD controller can be applied in areas like body electronics and lighting, infotainment, cluster, and industrial transportation. Thanks to the key characteristics, mainly integrated bus fault protection, cross-compatibility, 70-mA external output, and faster programmability of automotive software, using this new solution in automotive projects will allow reaching reduced system costs, small power design footprint, lower power consumption, and increased maximum data rate.
