The article discusses the role of controller area network(CAN) transceivers in vehicle networking systems. Vehicle networking involves various standards such as CAN, Local Interconnect Network, FlexRay technologies, Media Oriented System Transport and IEEE-1394. CAN is the commonly used, cost effective automotive networking technology. It also presents a table showing the physical layer of the CAN standard, emphasizing high speed CAN layer network where CAN transceiver's function is highlighted. It states that transceivers can be designed to protect system from various stresses.
