05:52 EDTVLKAY, NXPINXP Mantis CAN tranceivers approved by Volkswagen for chokeless use in vehicles
NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) announced that Volkswagen (VLKAY) has approved Mantis for use in its vehicles without the need for a common-mode choke, enabling significant system cost savings in applications. With increasing functions being introduced into the car, the performance of a modern IVN becomes increasingly critical to the vehicle's safe and reliable operation, with electro-magnetic emission and immunity against electro-magnetic interference being critical parameters to control. Automotive manufacturers define strict specifications which all transceivers must adhere to before being approved for use in the vehicle. Traditionally, a common-mode choke has been required to reach the performance limits in the application, creating an additional cost of approximately 10c-15c per module.
