A word from the CiA Managing Director

The Embedded World tradeshow takes place in Nuremberg (Germany) from February 25 to 27. 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, and higher-layer protocols using the 64-byte data field. Device designers can select interoperable products from different suppliers.

CiA staff is available to discuss future trends in CAN technologies, to inform about CiA services, and to answer questions on CiA specifications. Unfortunately, I will not be available. I will attend at the same time in the TMC (Technology & Maintenance Council) annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. I will read a paper about emerging data bus communications in the automotive and commercial markets. This conference is North America’s premier technical conference for trucking.
