The MCP2561/2 transceivers provides two device options. The MCP2561 is an HS CAN transceiver in an 8-pin package and features a SPLIT pin. The SPLIT pin helps to stabilize common mode in biased split termination schemes. The MCP2562 is also an HS CAN transceiver available in an 8-pin package and features a Vio pin.

The transceivers have an industry low standby current consumption (<5 µA typical) helping meet automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) low-power budget requirements. Both parts are also available in 8-lead PDIP, SOIC and 3×3 mm DFN (leadless) package types allowing for development flexibility and offering alternatives for space limited application boards. 

The devices support both Extended (E): −40°C to +125°C and High (H): −40°C to +150°C temperature ranges providing customers the ability to use one part across various CAN connected applications.

The MCP2561/2 CAN transceivers are designed for a wide range of applications in the automotive and industrial markets including manufacturing, construction and agriculture, among others.
