How CAN Bus Automatic Baudrate Detection Works And What To Consider When Connecting To A Network

Automatic CAN Bus baudrate detection comes in handy when you need to connect to a CAN network without knowing its actual transmission speed. Rather than playing with CAN baudrate settings and testing if you are able to see data, the automatic detection will deliver the right result within seconds, however, depending on busload. A heavy [...]
