Vecow introduced its EAC-3000 host controller with isolated Classical CAN and CAN FD interfaces, intended for in-vehicle applications, robot control, and automated guided vehicles.
Vecow is an American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) company headquartered in Irvine, California, USA. AIS offers in-house electronic and mechanical design, software development, manufacturing, production, and quality control services.
The fanless EAC 3000 host controller comes with up to two isolated Classical CAN or CAN FD interfaces. Possible applications include rolling stock, commercial vehicles, robotics, and autonomous driving.
The EAC-3000 utilizes the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier platform featuring an 8-core NVIDIA Carmel ARM CPU, a 512-core NVIDIA Volta GPU, and up to 64 GiB LPDDR4x memory. Besides two CAN Bus interfaces, the controller features four USB ports, two serial links, and five 1- Gbit interfaces. The controller has six antennas to support industrial-grade connectivity through M.2 Key E and Key B, supporting 5G/4G/LTE/WiFi/BT/GPS communications. The system supports wall-mounting, and with anti-shock, anti-vibration, and IEC 61373 certified, it is suited for harsh environmental conditions.

PiCAN FD with GPS/GNSS ublox NEO-M8M for Raspberry Pi
The PiCAN FD board has a ublox NEO-M8M GPS/GNSS receiver. The NEO-M8 modules employ simultaneous reception of up to three GNSS systems (GPS/Galileo together with BeiDou or GLONASS), recognize multiple constellations simultaneously, and provide outstanding positioning accuracy even when weak signals are involved. The antenna connection is via an SMA connector.
TQ announced their TQMa117xL system-on-chip (SOC) module to develop space-saving and energy-efficient control systems. The board supports up to three CAN FD interfaces.The module uses the power of the NXP i.MX RT1170 MCU. It comes a compact size of 31 mm x 31 mm (1.2 " x 1.2") and supplies all CPU signals via a total [...]
Kontron announced the release of their Pi-Tron CM4 computer with Linux OS, which utilizes the fourth-generation Raspberry Pi compute module with the 1,5-GHz, 64-bit Broadcom BCM2711 chip and four Arm Cortex-A72 processors. The computer’s steel housing allows for universal use, e.g., for automation and IoT (Internet of Things) applications. Depending on the variant, it provides a 1-GiB, 2-GB, [...]
Arduino Portenta H7 - Dual-Core STM32 Processor Board with Two CAN FD Ports and Support for Arduino IoT Cloud
The Portenta H7's central processor is represented by the dual-core STM32H747, including a Cortex M7 at 480 MHz and a Cortex M4 at 240 MHz. The two cores intercommunicate through a Remote Procedure Call mechanism that seamlessly enables calling functions on the other processor. Both processors share on-chip peripherals and can run Arduino Sketches on the Arm [...]

The Six-Channel PCAN-Router Pro FD by PEAK Systems connects the data traffic of modern CAN FD and classic CAN Bus networks. Pluggable CAN Bus transceiver modules provide universal adaptation for each CAN-Bus channel to match their individual requirements. In addition, the router comes with an analog input and four digital I/Os. The CAN Bus data traffic can [...]
In the past, I frequently received inquiries regarding the availability of a four-channel CAN Bus gateway. Such devices exist in the marketplace; however, they are usually costly, and, after all, they don't support easy customization or programming. While we at Copperhill Technologies have the ability to create such a gateway, this is primarily a matter [...]
The TQMax4xxl modules by TQ Systems represent an LGA (Land Grid Array) based on the Sitara AM243x microcontroller and the AM64xx processor with up to six cores from Texas Instruments. Possible applications include servo motor controllers (for robotics), industrial gateways, data collectors, and small edge servers in production, providing data for the cloud. The module size of [...]
It was just a few weeks ago that I received some bad news. Due to the worldwide shortage of electronic components, the NXP LPC1754 processor we use for our SAE J1939 ECU Simulator with USB Port will not be available for several months, maybe even well into 2022. Consequently, it was time to rethink the design, and [...]
To say it upfront, the difference between SAE J1939 and CAN Bus (Classical CAN and CAN FD) has all to do with so-called "Higher Later Protocols (HLP)," and SAE J1939 is one of them. I have written a post about HLPs (see: Guide to SAE J1939 - CAN Bus Higher Layer Protocols), but I would like [...]
