CAN Info Mail

This monthly email is for all CAN fellows.
January 2020

A word from the CiA Managing Director

The year 2020 is just fresh and already somehow busy. CiA prepares its first fair participation at Embedded World in Nuremberg (Germany). The CiA booth is in hall 1 (stand 630).

In parallel, the 17th iCC (international CAN Conference) casts its shadow before one. The final papers will come in the next days and we layout them for the proceedings. CAN XL is one of the important topics on this conference. It is the next CAN data link protocol supporting payloads up to 2048 byte. The intended bit-rate is 10+ Mbit/s. By the way, have you registered already for the iCC?

Shortly before the iCC, CiA exhibits at Conexpo in Las Vegas (USA). We promote CAN-based networks in construction and mining machinery. This includes J1939 and CANopen. CiA’s joint booth is in lobby of the South hall 3.

CiA has slowed down the schedule of seminars. This is, because there are increasingly demands on in-house seminars. CiA can also offer virtual in-house seminars by means of the Zoom web-conference approach. Additionally, CiA continues to provide open webinars and CiA Info Days informing interested parties about CAN technology developments in general.

Personally, I will still work as an editor for the CAN Newsletter (Online) as well as for CiA’s social media activities. Later on this year, CiA plans to provide periodical contributions to Youtube.

CANopen Product Panels on CiA stands

In 2020, CiA offers to its members the opportunity to present their CANopen products on the Embedded World and SPS 2020, by means of CANopen Product Panels. Furthermore CiA members can use this measure to increase their visibility at IAS (CN) and Bauma (CN).
