A communication LSI Set for Automotive Body control systems such as power windows, power seats, and power doors based on an in-vehicle network have been developed. The main function of the LSI is to achieve an original automotive communication protocol. The LSI set makes it possible to build a new kind of automotive control system, and reduces the number of wiring harnesses and weight below those of the conventional automotive body electronics. The communications transmitters and receivers have been integrated on-chip, so the LSI needs several external discrete components such as resistors, capacitors, and diodes. This communications LSI offers the advantages of small size and high reliability of the electronic control unit based on an in-vehicle network.
