CAN Bus Transceiver
Designed for harsh CAN environments, IL41050TA single-chip isolated CAN transceivers
have a -55 to +125°C operating range, bus pin transient protection, thermal shutdown
protection, short-circuit protection, minimum transient immunity of 30 kV/µs,
and isolation resistance of 1014 ohms.
The nearly foolproof IL41050TA isolated CAN transceiver
Unique edge-triggered inputs improve noise performance. IL41050 transceivers are
IEC 60747-5-5 (VDE 0884) certified and rated for a remarkable 600 working
volts. A wide-body version has true 8 millimeter creepage per IEC 60601.
Heres a reference circuit:
A foolproof IL41050TA reference circuit
The decoupling capacitors can reduce power supply noise. With no external components,
the IL41050 withstands 200 volt bus transients, and a PSM712 or similar transient
suppressor can be added for additional bus ESD protection if necessary.
No fooling, its a harsh world. You need a tough isolator.

Data Translation Couplers
April 1NVE isolators have always been ideal for translating data protocols
like RS-422, RS-485, PROFIBUS, and CAN.
Groundbreaking new products to be launched April 1 will also translate the
language layer with NVEs unique isolation technology. The ILDT4-1-Series
Data Translation Couplers will be available in Mandarin, German, and New Zealand
Unidirectional versions allow data translation without having to listen to the
other side, and bidirectional devices are also available.
NVEs unique spintronic technology allows the devices to run at very high
speed, ideal for fast talkers. The Mandarin Chinese version is particularly fast:

(part # ILDT4-1-CN)
The bidirectional German version includes an output driver code-named Autobahn
because it drives like a maniac. The German-to-English channel has a harshness
filter to prevent the German from making your ears bleed:

(part # ILDT4-1-DE)
Though technically English speakers, NVE learned the importance of New Zealand
translators while attempting to communicate with a new
distributor in Auckland.
The New Zealand translator misspells random words, adds superfluous vowels, and
has an 18-hour propagation delay.
Interest in the New Zealand part has been bonzers:
