Ethernet/CAN Interface EtherCAN CI-ARM7

Ethernet/CAN Interface EtherCAN CI-ARM7

transmits data between a CAN network and Ethernet systems.

Special Features

Ethernet/CAN Interface EtherCAN CI-ARM7

  • Application as Ethernet based interface to the CAN bus
  • Filtering and buffering of CAN traffic
  • Microcontroller Nuvoton NUC740A with CAN­ controller NXP SJA1000
  • Supports the CAN protocols 2.0A and 2.0B
  • Serial interface for the configuration of the device
  • Rail mountable
  • Free of charge development kits for Windows 7/8.x/10 and Linux

Description

The Ethernet/CAN ­Gateway EtherCAN CI-ARM7 transmits data between a CAN network and Ethernet systems. As an universal CAN­ interface with an Ethernet interface, EtherCAN CI-ARM7 is independent from internal data buses and thus can be used with a variety of different work stations (PC, Mac, UNIX­-workstation).

EtherCAN CI-ARM7 includes a Nuvoton NUC740A (ARM7 core) with 80 Mhz clock and a Linux operating system. In addition, the device has 16 MB SDRAM and 2 MB Flash. The connection to the CAN bus is done by a CAN controller of type NXP SJA1000 and supports the CAN protocols 2.0A and 2.0B.

The protocol used for the communication between a host and EtherCAN CI-ARM7 is documented and disclosed.

Development kits that allow the development of client applications for the operating systems Windows 7/8.x/10 or Linux are available free of charge.

Technical Data

Layout and Connection

EtherCAN CI-ARM7 includes a CAN segment connected by a male and a female plug of type D-Sub9, the pin assignment complying to CiA DS-102 standard. Besides the CAN signals the connectors also carry the power supply for EtherCAN CI-ARM7. In addition, EtherCAN CI-ARM7 includes an Ethernet connector (RJ45, 10/100 MBit/s) and a serial connector (D-Sub9).
The following table shows the assignment of the CAN connectors:

PinNameFunction
2CAN_LCAN data line (dominant low)
3, 6GNDGround
7CAN_HCAN data line (dominant high)
9VccPower supply +24 V
