Quality Criteria of Chips & Boards

  • Does the board and the chips respectively are equipped with FIFO buffers or at least a buffer at all, for SPI and I2C interfaces ?
  • Is the chip designed to serve in CAN-Bus applications ? The application designers expect 5 Volts support by the CPU for simple CAN-Bus support.
