CiA webinars accompanying the iCC

CiA has scheduled six one-hour webinars on the third and fourth day of the international CAN Conference (iCC).

On June 16, Dr. Arthur Mutter (Bosch) provides talks about the interoperability of CAN XL and CAN FD. The CAN FD protocol is internationally standardized in ISO 11898-2015. The CAN XL protocol is one of the main topics of the iCC 2021. The one-hour webinar describes the option, how to use both protocols in a network system.

On the same day, Peter Fellmeth (Vector) presents the SAE J1939-22 application layer, which is based on the CAN FD protocol. Most important is the introduction of the Multi-PDU concept mapping several Parameter Groups (PG) into one CAN FD data frame. SAE J1939-22 specifies also a new transport protocol for data larger than the 64-byte payload of the CAN FD protocol.

Last webinar on June 16 is given by Alexander Philipp and Torsten Gedenk (Emotas). They describe the migration from classic CANopen to CANopen FD. CANopen FD is specified in CiA 1301 and features the USDO (Universal Service Data Object) services. These services can be sent in broadcast and multicast as well as in unicast.

On June 17, Magnus Hell (Infineon) discusses the CAN physical layer options. This webinar covers the CAN high-speed transceiver (ISO 11898-2:2016), the CAN SIC transceiver (CiA 601-4), and the CAN XL SIC transceiver (CiA 610-3). This webinar provides a general understanding of the differences and gives network design hints.

The second webinar on June 17, introduces the PWM (pulse-width modulation) coding specified for CAN XL. This optional coding/decoding can be implemented on the CAN XL controller and the CAN XL SIC transceiver. Presenter is Matthias Muth (NXP).

The topic of the last webinar is CAN FD topology simulation. Patrick Isensee (C&S Group) reports about made experiences in simulating and designing CAN FD network architectures.

All these one-hour seminars are free of charge. Nevertheless, participants need to register as early as possible to get the Zoom meeting details. You can register online.
