This training solution is designed to facilitate the development and investigation of systems that use the CAN bus protocol for communications. The solution comprises of four fully programmable CAN nodes which mimic ECUs in an automotive application. These are mounted on rugged backplanes and are fitted with ancillary circuit boards which mimic the functions of indicator lamps, switches and sensors. The software, which is available separately, allows students to program each of the four nodes to form a fully functioning CAN system in flow charts. The solution is suitable for automotive students who simply need to understand how CAN works, and for electronic students who want to understand protocols. The course operates at several levels so that different types of student are exposed to the only relevant details of the CAN system. A CAN bus analyser and message generator is supplied with the solution.
This product includes an EB006v9 multiprogrammer which, when combined with Flowcode 6 and above, provides access to the advanced In-Circuit Test and In-Circuit Debug features found in our revolutionary Ghost Technology. To find out more about the capabilities of Ghost, click here:
