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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
