LIN - Local Interconnect Network

Economic communication between sensors and actors

An individual bus was required to ensure the inexpensive integration of sensors and actuators in vehicle networks – CAN solutions are too expensive here. This led to the launch of the LIN bus (Local Interconnected Network) via which small subnetworks are connected – typically to CAN networks.

The LIN is in use everywhere today, for example in door modules, in seats and for connecting air-conditioning.

Softing Experience

For many years now, Softing has been implementing customized solutions for LIN. In most cases, these are test systems for individual LIN ECUs, vehicle subsystems that have a LIN bus or vehicle subnetworks.
