DATA BUSES AND NETWORKING: CAN module for high-speed industrial control and automotive introduced by WinSystems

WinSystems Inc. in Arlington, Texas, is introducing the PCM-CAN-2-ISO PC/104-compliant, dual channel, isolated Controller Area Network (CAN) module for embedded computing operation in high-speed industrial control, high-voltage renewable energy, or unpredictable automotive applications.

The CAN module has Windows and Linux software drivers available, and employs high-speed isolated data couplers and power supplies to provide 1000 volts protection between the two NXP SJA1000 CAN controllers and the network interface. Each CAN channel can provide isolated 5 volts DC power or receive isolated 5 volts to 12 volts DC power from the interface. The 5-volt DC power supply includes overvoltage, overcurrent, and short-circuit protection.
