Low-Cost CAN Bus Monitor For Developing And Debugging High-Speed CAN Networks

Posted by Industry News on


Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications. 

The CAN Bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides fast communication among microcontrollers up to real-time requirements.

The CAN Bus Analyzer Tool by Microchip represents an easy-to-use, low-cost CAN Bus monitor for developing and debugging high-speed CAN networks. The tool comes with a broad range of functions that allow it to use across multiple market segments, including automotive, industrial, medical, and marine. 

The device supports CAN 2.0b and ISO11898-2 and connects to a CAN Bus network using the DB9 connector or screw terminal connection. In addition, the CAN Bus Analyzer offers required functionality such as trace, transmit, trace filter, and log file capability and adds unique features such as ECAN register view and group CAN message transmit. 

These features make this a handy tool for quick and straightforward debugging in any high-speed CAN network.

Teensy 4.0 CAN Bus And CAN FD Training Board

Teensy 4.0 CAN Bus And CAN FD Training Board

This board carries an Arduino-compatible Teensy 4.0 microprocessor system, representing a CAN Bus and CAN FD training board. There are four onboard potentiometers, LEDs, an RGB LED, and switches. 

The board simulates analog inputs and then outputs the signal to the CAN bus in either Classical CAN or CAN FD format. Power is applied through an external +12 VDC feed with reverse voltage protection. External sensors can be connected via the QWIIC connector.
