Cervoz Technology, a supplier of embedded components for the industrial PC market, has extended its industrial modular expansion cards line with the MEC-CAN-2802i, which provides two isolated CAN CC (Classical CAN) interfaces.
The expansion card delivers a cost-effective solution for integrating CAN CC ports into embedded computer systems, especially in hostile environments. The board incorporates an M.2 2280 dual-isolated CAN module. According to Cervoz Technology, it is compatible with existing M.2 slots and allows installation without complicated hardware configurations. The supported CAN Bus bit rates range from 10 kbit/s to 1 Mbit/s. The supplied standard package incorporates accessories like brackets and a cable with the 9-pin DSUB connector. The software drivers support for Linux and Windows.
MEC-CAN-2802i secures communication with serial line protection and up to 15-kV ESD protection on board. These features comply with EN 61000-4-2 (ESD protection) and protect against electrical interference and static discharge, assuring secure data transmission. Furthermore, its 2,5-kV galvanic isolation prevents direct electrical connections between circuits, improving stability and performance. The supported temperature range is from -40 °C to +85 °C. Accordingly, the module is suited for industrial automation, control systems, vehicle management, and more.
- CAN bus 2.0B backward compatible with 2.0A
- Compliant with ISO 11898
- Support baud rate 10/20/50/100/ 125/250/500/800/1000K
- Compliant with EN61000-4-2 (ESD) Air-15kV, Contact-8kV
- Support Card ID and Silent mode setting by switch
- Support port to computer isolation 2.5kV
espBerry - ESP32 Development Board with Dual Isolated CAN Bus HAT
The espBerry DevBoard combines the ESP32-DevKitC development board with any Raspberry Pi HAT by connecting to the onboard RPi-compatible 40-pin GPIO header.
The Dual Channel CAN Bus expansion HAT, designed for the Raspberry Pi, supports the full CAN2.0 Standard, and it features multi onboard protection circuits, high anti-interference capability, and reliable operation. As a result, it suits applications such as automotive devices or industrial automation.
The HAT is well documented, and there are multiple code samples using the C programming language under the Arduino IDE.
For the longest time, I had resisted the idea of creating my version of a CAN-to-USB gateway, primarily due to the vast competition. A professional CAN/J1939 development requires a professional CAN-to-PC solution to monitor data traffic. I am pleased with the PEAK PCAN-USB device, as shown in the above image. However, not everybody is willing [...]
Mini PCI-E Module Integrates Classical CAN (CAN bus 2.0 A/B, OBDII, SAE J1939), CAN FD, and GNSS features
Antzer Tech, a subsidiary of Innodisk, introduced their GADN-FD7L0 PC interface card, which integrates CAN (CAN bus 2.0 a/b, OBDII, SAE J1939), CAN FD, and GNSS features into one mini PCI-E combo module. The board comes in a standard Mini PCI Express form factor. It supports USB 2.0 and two independent CAN FD ports with data-phase bit [...]
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 [...]
The first question that may arise when talking about accessing the MCP2515 CAN Bus controller per ESP32 may be, "Why would you need an MCP2515 controller when the ESP32 comes with an internal CAN port?" Yes, I found this question in one of the online forums while researching this particular topic. The answer is easy: [...]
I want to reiterate a point made in a previous post ("A Beginner's Guide to SAE J1939 Embedded Software Development"): When developing and testing your CAN Bus application, may it be Classical CAN, CAN FD, CANopen, SAE J1939, or NMEA 2000, you need to connect your device to a functional network. One solitary node connected to your [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Warwick Control Technologies has released a development kit that enables users to simulate Classical CAN, CAN FD, and LIN devices and networks. It also supports the simulation of SAE J1939, NMEA 2000, and CANopen devices and networks. The kit comes with the Kvaser Hybrid Pro two-channel interface to test Classical CAN, CAN FD, and LIN systems through [...]
