Brief Description:

Without special LIN expertise, designers can easily add a LIN interface to their applications using Atmel® microcontrollers (MCUs). The LIN configuration tool supports LIN specifications 1.3, 2.0 and 2.1 as well as the US standard J2602.An example application is available from the ihr website (www.ihr.de) that demonstrates how to use the IHR tool to quickly configure a LIN 2.1 slave application for an Atmel ATtiny MCU.

The configuration tool simply needs basic information such as:

  • The Atmel® derivate
  • The LIN Description File (LDF)
  • The node to be implemented (as per LDF)
  • The controller speed

Additionally, designers can select optional services as per LIN specifications. Experienced users can change hardware-specific settings. The tool then generates C Code for the embedded project. The configuration can be stored for later usage. The generated driver files are integrated into the existing project. The code generated supports the specified compliant LIN API.

Therefore, the project manager can concentrate on the applications and rely on a LIN conform driver.



  • Suitable for the following Atmel microcontrollers
           - ATtiny87/167
           - ATmegaX4 family, ATmegaX8 family
