Atmel : High-speed CAN transceivers support CAN with flexible data rate (ATA6560 / ATA6561)


The ATA6560 and ATA6561 from Atmel are CAN transceivers which provide an interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus.

The transceivers, which support the CAN-FD standard with data rates up to 5Mbits/s, are ideal for use in CAN networks in industrial equipment.

The ATA6560 transceiver supports Silent mode operation, and is compatible with 5V I/O lines. The ATA6561 transceiver is compatible with 3.3V and 5V microcontrollers.

Compliant with the ISO11898-2 and ISO11898-5 standards, the Atmel CAN transceiver family meets industrial applications’ requirements for EMC and ESD performance. The devices are also AEC-Q100 qualified for use in automotive applications.
