JAJSF71B April 2018 – December 2019 TLIN1024-Q1
During normal mode, if TXD is inadvertently driven permanently low by a hardware or software application failure, the LIN bus is protected by the dominant state timeout timer. This timer is triggered by a falling edge on the TXD pin. If the low signal remains on TXD for longer than tDST, the transmitter is disabled, thus allowing the LIN bus to return to recessive state and communication to resume on the bus. The protection is cleared and the tDST timer is reset by a rising edge on TXD. The TXD pin has an internal pull-down to ensure the device fails to a known state if TXD is disconnected. During this fault, the transceiver remains in normal mode (assuming no change of stated request on EN), the transmitter is disabled, the RXD pin reflects the LIN bus and the LIN bus pull-up termination remains on.
