10th international CAN Conference

In Rome (IT) the iCC took place in the Mövenpick hotel Central Park and was not only accompanied by the tabletop exhibition, but also one day of workshops. Sponsored by the CiA member companies Atmel and System Electronics, also some publications publications attended the event: EDN Europe, Lift Report, RTC Books, and VNU Business Publications and reported about the 10th iCC after the event. The sessions covered Time-triggered communication, Physical layer, vehicle applications, network topologies and others.
