LIN Core — ASIC Implementation Results

The LIN can be mapped to any ASIC technology or FPGA device (provided sufficient silicon resources are available). The following table provides sample performance and resource utilization data. Please contact CAST to get characterization data for your target configuration and technology.

ASIC Technology

Configuration

Approx. Area

Frequency

TSMC 0.18 Master 2,710 gates 4 MHz
TSMC 0.18 Slave 3,840 gates 4 MHz
TSMC 0.18 Slave w/ auto bit rate 4,060 gates 4 MHz
TSMC 0.13 Master 2,500 gates 4 MHz
TSMC 0.13 Slave 3,500 gates 4 MHz
TSMC 0.13 Slave w/ auto bit rate 3,760 gates 4 MHz

Note: 4 MHz is the required LIN speed.
