TJA1128 LIN Mini System Basis Chip

Cost effective, Space optimized. With its rich and customizable feature set, NXP's TJA1128 LIN mini SBC family offers a high degree of design-in flexibility while significantly reducing design-in costs and complexity, bill of materials (BoM) and required board space.

The TJA1128 is a LIN mini system basis chip (SBC) with a LIN transceiver, a low-dropout voltage regulator (LDO), a window watchdog, two WAKE inputs, one general purpose input (GPI) and one high-voltage multipurpose (HVMPO) output.

The voltage regulator delivers up to 85 mA and is available with 3.3 V and 5.0 V output voltages. The TJA1128 can be operated in very low-current standby and sleep modes with bus and local wake-up capability.



  • Battery operating voltage range from (3.3 V) 5.0 V to 28 V
    • SLEEP mode (voltage regulator off): typically 14 μA
    • STANDBY mode (voltage regulator on): typically 22 μA
  • Remote wake-up capability via pin LIN
  • Local wake-up via pins WAKE1 and WAKE2
    • Configurable level-sensitive wake-up detection
    • Cyclic sampled wake-up detection option with synchronized bias control via pin
  • Wake-up source recognition
  • Configurable high-voltage multipurpose output (HVMPO)
    • Bias control output for cyclic wake-up
    • Limp home output
    • Bias control output for battery monitoring circuit
    • General purpose input (GPI) controlled output
  • Limp home function on overtemperature, watchdog service fail, VCC Undervoltage and RSTN short-circuit to ground
  • Overtemperature shutdown
  • Bidirectional reset pin with variable power-on reset length


  • Configurable features and functions allow for greater design-in flexibility, reducing complexity and lowering external component count
  • High hardware/software reuse (family of variants) helps shorten time-to-market and lowers development and qualification costs
  • Fewer external components and greater integration optimize the BoM and PCB area


  • Automotive Advanced Exterior Lighting
  • Entry Infotainment / Connected Radio
  • Gateway
  • Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Mid to High Infotainment / eCockpit
  • Service-Oriented Gateway
