The MCP2551 is a high-speed CAN, fault-tolerant device that serves as the interface between a CAN protocol
controller and the physical bus. The MCP2551 device provides differential transmit and receive capability for the
CAN protocol controller, and is fully compatible with the ISO-11898 standard, including 24V requirements. It will
operate at speeds of up to 1 Mb/s.
Typically, each node in a CAN system must have a device to convert the digital signals generated by a CAN
controller to signals suitable for transmission over the bus cabling (differential output). It also provides a buffer
between the CAN controller and the high-voltage spikes that can be generated on the CAN bus by outside
sources (EMI, ESD, electrical transients, etc.).
