Baby-LIN (8000565) - small form factor USB to LIN converter
Small but powerful system to control a LIN bus via USB. Simulates LIN master or LIN slave nodes. Isolated LIN interface avoids problems in noisy environments.
The device also supports stand-alone operation without a PC. So a durability test sequence can be defined as a macro and start automatically on connection to the LIN bus, completely without PC.
  • LIN-bus controller for restbus simulation, ECU test, automated testsystems, software development and many other applications.
  • Can be used via USB on a PC or as a stand-alone device.
  • Supports LIN-bus versions 1.2, 1.3, 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2.
  • Galvanically isolated LIN-bus interface allows for troublefree operation on your PC.
  • Simulated LIN master and/or LIN slave nodes.
  • Realtime access on signal and frame data (read/write).
  • Monitor operation with timestamp recording.
  • Support for DTL (Diagnostic Transport Layer).
  • Board voltage of  8 - 28 VDC.
  • Support of DTL (Diagnostic Transport Layer).
  • LINWorks application suite includes LDF-editor, session configurator and full customizable user interface.
  • Control LIN-bus from your PC application via DLL.
  • (sample code available for C#, Visual C, Visual Basic and LabView).
  • Target applications are bus simulation, ECU test, automatic testsystems, demonstration objects and a lot more...
  • Ultra compact. Dimensions: 85 x 45mm (H x B).


Very powerful and inexpensive, complete package including LINWorks software, DLL and USB cable for 446 € plus VAT and shipping for customers inside the EU and 470 € for customers outside the EU.
