TCAN1042H: PIN5 NC connection?

Part Number: TCAN1042H


For TCAN1042HDR can pin 5 be connected to 5V via a resistor or must it be left disconnected compulsorily?



  • Hi Antonio,

    Pin 5 for the non-'V' versions of TCAN1042 is a true internal no connect, meaning the state of this pin (within reason) will not impact device behavior. This allows compatibility with designs with footprints that implement other functions (such as split which is not needed with TCAN1042's driver). Connection to a 5V potential, with or without a resistor, is not a problem.
