Programmable ECU and GPS Modules with Classical CAN, CAN FD, SAE J1939 Connections

Posted by Industry News on

PCAN-GPS Programmable Sensor Module with CAN Connection

PEAK-System presented several innovative I/O products with Classical CAN and CAN FD connections in this year's Embedded World trade show. 

The versatile control unit PCAN-MicroMod FD ECU integrates customer-specific accessories for automotive applications. For this purpose, the device offers a CAN FD connection and a combination of analog and digital I/Os. The I/O processing and message transmission can be configured using Windows software and transmitted via the CAN Bus connection. The rugged enclosure with two automotive connectors permits commercial and heavy-duty vehicles to operate under harsh environmental conditions. In addition, the PCAN-MicroMod FD ECU supports the communication standards SAE J1939 and SAE J1939 FD, which are standard in commercial vehicles.

Furthermore, PEAK-System introduced their new programmable sensor module PCAN-GPS FD. Current sensors include a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an acceleration sensor, and a gyroscope to determine position and orientation. The received data can be processed using the integrated microcontroller based on Arm Cortex-M4 and transmitted via Classical CAN or CAN FD. The supplied development package allows the modification of the sensor module's functionality to match specific application requirements.
