CAN (Controller Area Network) is a type of serial communication protocol that is commonly used in electronic systems, such as automobiles and industrial control systems. CAN is a peer-to-peer communication protocol that allows multiple devices to be connected together in a network and to communicate with each other.
CAN ICs are integrated circuits that implement the CAN communication protocol. They are used to provide CAN communication capabilities in electronic systems and devices. CAN ICs typically consist of a CAN controller, which manages the communication on the network, and one or more CAN transceivers, which are used to interface with the physical bus.
CAN ICs are widely used in a variety of applications, including automotive, industrial automation, and other electronic systems that require reliable and high-speed communication. They are an important component of many electronic systems, and they are often used in applications where multiple devices need to be connected together in a network.
