A New Generation of SAE J1939 Gateway, ECU Simulator, and Starter Kit

Like many other businesses, we have to deal with the global shortage of electronic components. For instance, the NXP LPC 17xx processors we used for our SAE J1939 gateways and the starter kit are not available at this time. Even worse, there is no reliable information if/when production resumes. This situation forced us to rethink [...]

Application Note: Transmitting Analog Signals Using the SAE J1939 Protocol

This post is part of our series on Utilizing SAE J1939 as a Higher-Layer Protocol for Industrial Automation. In short, the application I had in mind was to read an analog signal per one SAE J1939 node and transmit the data to another J1939 node where it controls the blinking frequency of an LED. This project is based [...]
