CAN transceivers for automotive, industrial markets
Microchip's family of High-Speed (HS) CAN transceivers, MCP2561 and MCP2562, are designed to serve as an interface in the automotive and industrial markets including manufacturing and construction.
Microchip's family of High-Speed (HS) CAN transceivers, the MCP2561/2, serve as an interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical two-wire CAN bus.
The MCP2561/2 transceivers provides two device options. The MCP2561 is an HS CAN transceiver in an 8-pin package and features a SPLIT pin. The SPLIT pin helps to stabilize common mode in biased split termination schemes. The MCP2562 is also an HS CAN transceiver available in an 8-pin package and features a Vio pin.
The transceivers have an industry low standby current consumption (<5 µA typical) helping meet automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) low-power budget requirements. Both parts are also available in 8-lead PDIP, SOIC and 3x3 mm DFN (leadless) package types allowing for development flexibility and offering alternatives for space limited application boards.
The devices support both Extended (E): −40°C to +125°C and High (H): −40°C to +150°C temperature ranges providing customers the ability to use one part across various CAN connected applications.
The MCP2561/2 CAN transceivers are designed for a wide range of applications in the automotive and industrial markets including manufacturing, construction and agriculture, among others.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
