The Embedded World 2020 trade show takes place in Nuremberg (Germany) from February 25 to 27. CAN in Automation (CiA) has a booth in hall 1 (stand 630). Additionally, CiA staff presents three papers on the accompanying conference:
· Oskar Kaplun: Condition Monitoring and Embedding CANopen in IoT
· Yao Yao: CANopen FD Devices Identification via New Layer Setting Services (LSS)
· Reiner Zitzmann: Migration from Classical CAN to CAN FD.
This year’s main topic on the CiA stand is the availability of CAN FD building blocks. This includes CAN FD controllers, transceivers supporting bit-rates above 1 Mbit/s, higher-layer protocols using the 64-byte data field, and CANopen FD protocol stacks. Device designers can select interoperable products from different suppliers.
CAN FD provides an accelerated firmware update with up to 5 Mbit/s in the data transmission phase. It also enables smart security measures with 64 byte max. payload, as well as simplified functional safety. CAN FD provides dynamic cross-communication supported by CANopen FD and reduces the bus-load for J1939.
As usual, CiA shows classic CANopen products on its stand. CiA staff is available to discuss future trends in CAN technologies, to inform about CiA services, and to answer questions on CiA specifications.
