LIN/USB Data Converter
The LIN/USB Data Converter allows a personal computer to act as a diagnostic analyzer during development and testing of an automotive ECU (electronic control unit) that supports the LIN communications protocol.
The LIN/USB Data Converter connects to a personal computer over a USB connection. It contains a built-in microcontroller that handles the LIN protocol. The LIN baud rate is programmable from 1000 to 21,000 bps. The LIN/USB Data Converter transfers data to and from the PC at the selected LIN baud rate.
The LIN/USB Data Converter, under control of the PC, can serve as the LIN bus master. Automotive Data Converters' Model 9011 can also be programmed to act as a LIN bus slave. The Data Converter accepts programming from the PC using the CLD format defined by the LIN specifications.
The LIN/USB Data Converter comes with a PC program that allows you to send and receive LIN messages to and from a compatible LIN slave ECU. While not a complete LIN protocol stack, this PC software greatly eases the task of developing and testing a LIN slave ECU.
