CAN FD On A Legacy CAN Bus Network Is Not A Good Idea Due To Compatibility Issues

My book, A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network, was initially published in 2005, and while the technology behind the "Classical" CAN (a tag used by CAN-In-Automation) has not changed, the growing market acceptance of CAN FD (Flexible Data Rate) made me think about working on a second edition. I am aware that CAN FD was [...]
