The UJA1065 fail-safe System Basis Chip (SBC) replaces basic discrete components that are common in every Electronic Control Unit (ECU) with a Controller Area Network (CAN) and a Local Interconnect Network (LIN) interface. The fail-safe SBC supports all networking applications that control various power and sensor peripherals by using high-speed CAN as the main network interface and LIN as a local sub-bus. The fail-safe SBC contains the following integrated devices:
High-speed CAN transceiver, interoperable and downward compatible with CAN transceivers TJA1041 and TJA1041A, and compatible with the ISO 11898-2 standard and the ISO 11898-5 standard (in preparation)
LIN transceiver compliant with LIN 2.0 and SAE J2602, and compatible with LIN 1.3
Advanced independent watchdog
Dedicated voltage regulators for microcontroller and CAN transceiver
Serial peripheral interface (full duplex)
Local wake-up input port
Inhibit/limp-home output port
In addition to the advantages of integrating these common ECU functions in a single package, the fail-safe SBC offers an intelligent combination of system-specific functions such as:
Advanced low-power concept
Safe and controlled system start-up behavior
Advanced fail-safe system behavior that prevents any conceivable deadlock
Detailed status reporting on system and subsystem levels
The UJA1065 is designed to be used in combination with a microcontroller that incorporates a CAN controller. The fail-safe SBC ensures that the microcontroller is always started up in a defined manner. In failure situations, the fail-safe SBC will maintain microcontroller functionality for as long as possible to provide full monitoring and a software-driven fall-back operation.
The UJA1065 is designed for 14 V single power supply architectures and for 14 V and 42 V dual power supply architectures.
