Microchip – MCP2561FD, MCP2562FD: CAN Flexible Data Rate Transceiver Family Exceeds Global Automotive Requirements

The MCP2561/2FD is a Microchip Technology Inc. second generation high speed CAN transceiver that complies to CAN FD (Flexible Data Rate) bus protocol which increases the maximum data rate while expanding the data field from 8 data bytes up to 64 data bytes. The MCP2561/2FD offers the same features as the MCP2561/2. Additionally, it guarantees Loop Delay Symmetry in order to support the higher data rates required for CAN FD. The maximum propagation delay was improved to support longer bus length. The device meets the automotive requirements for CAN FD bit rates exceeding 5Mbps, low quiescent current, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD).
