CiA technology days on CANopen FD

The online CiA technology days in July provide detailed information about CANopen FD. Presentation language is English. The participation is free-of-charge.

CiA has scheduled the next web-based CiA technology days. These events will take place July 6 respectively July 9. These CiA technology days provide an overview on status and future of CANopen FD technology. The CANopen FD application layer and communication profile is specified in the CiA 1301 document. There are also other specifications accompanying this specification such as the CiA 1302 series and CiA 1305 document. The four-hours online event gives an detailed introduction into the new features such as the USDO services and protocols. It shows also migration path options from classic CANopen networks to CANopen FD. CANopen FD is based on the CAN FD protocol, which allows bit-rates higher than 1 Mbit/s and features data frames with a payload up to 64 byte.
