The evaluation kit utilizes a USB dongle interface board in support of the 33912,
which is a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) -controlled System Basis Chip (SBC),
combining many frequently used functions in an MCU-based system, plus a Local Interconnect
Network (LIN) transceiver. The 33912 has a 5.0 V - 50 mA low dropout regulator with full
protection and reporting features. The device provides full SPI-readable diagnostics
and a selectable timing watchdog for detecting errant operation. The LIN Protocol Specification
2.0 and 2.1 ('G5AC) compliant LIN transceiver has waveshaping circuitry that can be disabled
for higher data rates.
Two 60 mA high side switches and two 160 mA low side switches with output protection are available
for driving resistive and inductive loads. All outputs can be pulse-width modulated (PWM).
This evaluation kit may be used with the KITUSBSPIDGLEVME.
