ON Semiconductor Introduces Improved Standalone LIN Transceiver

Compliant with LINv2.1 and J2602 specifications; Offers better EMC and ESD performance and lower power

LIN TransceiverPHOENIX, Ariz. – Nov. 11, 2008 - ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a leading global supplier of high performance, energy efficient, silicon solutions has announced the NCV7321, a standalone Local Interconnect Network (LIN) transceiver for the automotive industry. The low-power, mixed-signal NCV7321 is a replacement for the AMIS-30600 single-wire LIN transceiver, but with improved electromagnetic capability (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance and lower power dissipation.

The LINv2.1- and J2602-compliant NCV7321 has the same functionality as the AMIS-30600, but with a different pin-out, offering customers alternative sourcing for existing LIN transceivers. Automotive body and comfort applications for the NCV7321 include tire guard ECUs, receivers for remote key entry, electronic steering locks, window and sun hood lifters, alarms, seat movement and mirror controllers.

“The NCV7321 gives automotive Tier 1 and 2 suppliers another option for putting LIN-enabled networks into vehicles,” said Jan Polfliet, manager ASSP, Automotive Products at ON Semiconductor. “The low power dissipation and reduced system cost using ON Semiconductor’s LIN transceivers make them attractive for a wide range of existing and evolving automotive applications.”

The NCV7321 completes the ON Semiconductor LIN transceiver ASSP family, which currently consists of the NCV7420D23G and NCV7420D25G. The NCV7321 has all the functionality of the NCV7420, but without the built-in voltage regulators of the current parts. ON Semiconductor’s SmartPower technology, which combines high-voltage analog circuitry and dense digital functionality in a single chip, provides ESD protection to +/- 8 kilovolt (kV). Other standard features include indefinite short circuit protection between supply and ground, a thermal shutdown capability and an integrated slope control function to ensure low electromagnetic emissions. The rated operating temperature is -40° to 125°C.

Pricing and Availability
The NCV7321 is currently available in an SOIC 8-pin package at a unit cost of $0.70 in quantities of 1000.
