CAN (Controller Area Network) Gateway Design Considerations

While designing the jCOM series of CAN / SAE J1939 to USB gateways, we have thrived to accomplish maximum performance at the lowest possible price. While this statement may appear contradictive, we believe that we have created the perfect compromise (See also my post  Turbo CAN Bus, SAE J1939 Board For Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, and Android Systems). So, what [...]
