LIN Cable Termination

Last Modified: August 20, 2020

NI LIN devices are terminated at the transceiver, but master termination can be enabled in FlexLogger.

LIN cables require no termination, as nodes are terminated at the transceiver, which utilizes slave nodes that are typically pulled up from the LIN bus to VBat with a 30 kΩ resistance and a serial diode. This termination usually is integrated into the transceiver package. The master node requires a 1 kΩ resistor and serial diode between the LIN bus and VBat. In FlexLogger, master termination is software selectable; you can enable it by selecting Termination in Interface Settings.
