Developed with integrated CAN support, the board features a high-speed MCP2551 CAN transceiver that works as the interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical bus. It operates at speeds of up to 1 Mb/s and is suitable for 12V and 24V systems. The CAN-1 Board implements ISO-11898 standard physical layer requirements. It allows up to 112 nodes to be connected. The board can be connected to a development system via a female IDC10 connector. The DIP switch facilitates the user to choose which pins are used for RX/TX. The CAN-1 board is designed to operate using a 5V power supply only. When connecting to a 3.3V development system, voltage translators are advisable.
The CAN-1 board is an ideal option for industrial automation, home automation, automotive and mobile machine industry, and many more.
