The PCAN-MicroMod FD is a small plug-in board with CAN and CAN FD connection on the one side and various physical inputs and outputs on the other side. The logical linking of both sides is done by the microcontroller NXP LPC54618. With the PCAN-MicroMod FD, electronics developers can easily integrate I/O functionality with CAN connection into their project.
The PCAN-MicroMod FD is configured using the supplied Windows software. In addition to simple I/O mapping to CAN IDs, function blocks are also available for processing the data. The configuration created on the computer is transferred via the CAN bus to the PCAN-MicroMod FD which then runs as an independent CAN node. Multiple modules can be configured independently on a CAN bus. For the PCAN-MicroMod FD, ready-to-use motherboards in an aluminum housing and an evaluation board for the development of own applications are available.
This product is an evaluation board for the PCAN-MicroMod FD and allows the conception and development of own circuits with CAN connection and I/O functionality. Via pick-offs, screw terminals, switches, and potentiometers, the user can access the resources of the attached PCAN-MicroMod FD and check configurations or test circuits. The configuration is done with a supplied Windows software which transfers the configuration data to the module via CAN. The optionally available Evaluation Kit also includes the CAN interface and cable required for this purpose.
