CiA® publications

CiA is following an ambitious cross-media strategy. Information on CAN technology, CAN-related products and services as well as CAN applications is available in CiA’s publications and on the CiA website. All this information is highly hyperlinked.

Because online-media do not come to the users automatically, we send the CAN Community News to subscribers, an email with publication activities of CiA. This guarantees that you are always updated.
