CAN Bus PC/104 Peripheral Interface Comes With CAN Bus And CANopen Open Source Libraries For Linux

Posted by Industry News on

The TS-CAN1 by Technologic Systems is a PC/104 daughter board which provides a single channel CAN interface

The TS-CAN1 by Technologic Systems is a PC/104 daughter board which provides a single channel CAN interface and allows a PC/104 embedded system to be connected to CAN Bus networks.

The board utilizes the Philips SJA1000 CAN controller which is opto-isolated from the physical CAN Bus network, thus increasing the system reliability. It is also available without opto-isolation, in case of CAN Bus devices that use long wire connections where propagation delay might be a problem.

On-board jumpers are used to select both the interrupt and the I/O region. Up to four boards can be installed in any single system. The SJA1000 controller can be configured to interface with the processor through 8 different 32-bytes I/O regions.

TS-CAN1 is compatible with both X86 and ARM architectures; it can be used with the Technologic Systems X86 and ARM-based embedded boards. The TS-CAN1 manual is available per download.

The TS-CAN1 uses the Ocera framework as the principal software package. Ocera offers the Lincan driver for Linux and a full set of development libraries, like Libvca, and testing tools, allowing smooth and fast development integration. Moreover, Ocera/Lincan supports the CANOpen higher-level protocol (HLP). The Lincan driver supports both BasiCAN and PeliCAN, enabling 11-bit and 29-bit identifiers, respectively. The Ocera code base is open-source and is available under the terms of the GPL.

Technologic Systems provides a "Getting Started Guide" and a tarball with the entire OCERA/LINCAN compiled for both ARM and X86 architectures.


  • Philips SJA1000 CAN controller
  • Opto-isolated CAN interface
  • Also available without opto-isolation
  • Up to 1Mbps bit rate
  • Jumper selectable termination resistor

CANopen Architect Software For Creating And Editing Electronic Data Sheets (EDS)

CANopen is a higher layer protocol operating on a CAN Bus network. The CAN Bus specification defines solely the physical and data link layers in the ISO/OSI 7-layer Reference Model. Consequently, only the physical bus and the CAN Bus message format is defined, but not how the CAN Bus message applies. CANopen provides an open and [...]

Easy Integration Of CANopen Or SAE J1939 Protocol Stack Into Any Embedded System With Serial Input

The simple assumption behind the statement of easy integration of a CANopen or SAE J1939 protocol stack is that virtually every embedded system (and even other industrial controls such as PLCs) do have a serial port of some sort, mostly UART, RS232, or USB. "Easy" also implies that you don't have to go through major [...]
