8. Protecting your CAN bus
Protecting a system against electrostatic discharges (ESD) is a fundamental aspect of any design, which is why our solutions are so popular. For instance, the ESDCAN0x-2BWY is compliant with all key automobile interfaces, including CAN-FD, which makes it such a strategic device. Indeed, manufacturers must protect this critical protocol against rogue currents because if a malfunctioning CAN bus can lead to failures within the car’s safety systems, which could then potentially endanger the driver and passengers of a vehicle. It is thus easy to see why this topic got so much attention in 2018.
