The HI-3001 is a 1 Mbps Controller Area Network (CAN) transceiver optimized for use in aerospace applications. It interfaces between a CAN protocol controller and the physical wires of the bus in a CAN network. Differential output amplitude and current drive capability are specifically enhanced to meet the needs of long cable runs typical of aerospace applications.

The HI-3001 supports two modes of operation: Normal Mode and Standby Mode. The Standby Mode is a very low-current mode which continues to monitor bus activity and allows an external controller to manage wake-up.

Superior common-mode receiver performance makes the device specially suitable for applications where ground reference voltages may vary from point to point over long distances along the CAN bus. In addition, the HI-3001 provides a VIO supply voltage pin which allows the device to interface directly with controllers with 3.3V supply voltages..

A TXD dominant time-out feature also protects the bus from being driven into a permanent dominant state (so called “babbling idiot”) if pin TXD becomes permanently low due to application failure.

The device also has short circuit protection to +/-58V on CANH, CANL and SPLIT pins and ESD protection to +/- 6kV on all pins.

The device is available in industrial -40°Cto +85°C and extended -55°C to +125°C temperature ranges. “RoHS compliant” lead-free options are also available with optional burn-in for the extended temperature range.
