Today, MikroE has released a new Click Board, designed to connect to the CAN Bus.
The CAN Bus Click Board™ is a compact add-on board that provides a link between the CAN protocol controller and the physical wires of the bus lines in a control area network (CAN). This board features the MAX13054, an industry-standard, high-speed CAN transceiver with extended ±80V fault protection from Maxim Integrated. The CAN transceiver has an input common-mode range greater than ±12V with data rates up to 1Mbps, exceeding the ISO11898 specification of -2V to +7V, and feature ±8kV ESD protection. It also comes with a Standby feature that shuts off the transmitter and switches the receiver to a low-current/low-speed state.
This Click board™ is suitable for harsh industrial environments and industrial network applications where overvoltage protection is required.
