Part Number: ISO1050
I created a design using the iso1050 dub can transciever. I designed exactly as shown in the datasheet. I can't get any meaningful signal out of it. Occasionally I'll get a few square waves but most of the signal is noise. It's not a board design problem because I (through great effort) replaced the iso1050 with an SN65HV transciever and everything worked fine. Any help would be appreciated.
In reply to Dan Kisling:
Thanks for taking the time to help me figure this out.
Okay, I've taken some scope shots with a 10kHz 50% duty cycle signal applied to TX. I only have a 2 channel scope at the moment but can obtain a 4 channel if necessary.
This is a shot of the PWM signal applied to TX.
Here is TX and CANH
And here is TX and CANL
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to TODD COLLINS:
I've tried a number of different sampling points, but to no avail. Wouldn't sampling points cause issues with receiving messages exclusively? All I'm trying to do is send data on the CAN bus.
Yes, sampling points should really only affect how the micro controller receives the messages from the transceiver. That is, unless you're CAN analyzer tool is expecting a certain response.
To recap we've verified:
The only thing I can think of to still check on the ISO1050 is to verify that RX is healthy. Could you capture scope shots similar to the experiment you did to verify TX to CANH / CANL is healthy for RX? You could do either CANH / CANL and RX or TX and RX (I know you only have two scope probes available with this particular scope).
If this attempt does not work perhaps we could set up a quick call to discuss this issue. I've sent you an E2E friend request so we can exchange contact information in private messages (rather than posting them on the public forum).
