I am new to LIN transceiver and have a question on the data rate that TLIN device supports.
I found the description in the datasheet that "The LIN receiver supports data rates up to 100 kbps for faster in-line programming".
Another part of description gives that TLIN1024-Q1 supports "LIN transmit data rate up to 20-kbps" and "LIN is a single-wire bidirectional bus typically used for low speed in-vehicle networks using data rates up to 20 kbps."
Sorry to ask a very basic question, but:
- Device can transmit up to 20kbps, while it can receive up to 100kbps?
- What is an in-line programming in this context and what kind of benefit would a customer have if LIN receiver supports 100kbps for a faster in-line programming?
It would be very much helpful if there is some application notes for this topic.
