The 5-V VCC only devices are supplied by a single 5-V rail. The digital inputs have TTL input thresholds and are therefore 5 V and 3.3 V compatible. The RXD outputs on these devices are driven to the VCC rail for logic high output. Additionally, the TXD and STB pins are internally pulled up to VCC. The internal bias of the mode pins may only place the device into a known state if the terminals float, they may not be adequate for system-level biasing during transients or noisy environments.
TXD pull up strength and CAN bit timing require special consideration when these devices are used with CAN controllers with an open-drain TXD output. An adequate external pull up resistor must be used to ensure that the CAN controller output of the microcontroller maintains adequate bit timing to the TXD input.
