Just a few years after the market launch of CAN FD, a new CAN variant, CAN XL, is on the start – sometimes viewed with a little suspicion. In fact, CAN XL owes less to the marketing strategy of electronics suppliers than it does to the dynamic development in automotive electronics over the last few years. In particular, the advent of automotive Ethernet with IP technologies is changing some things fundamentally. Currently, service-oriented communication is establishing itself in the vehicle parallel to signal-based communication. In this context, CAN XL provides the basis for efficient cooperation between IP technology and classic, signal-based communication. With data transmission speeds of up to 10 Mbit/s, it closes the gap between CAN FD and 100-Mbit Ethernet (100BASE-T1).

This E-Learning module is intended for all those who want to gain a better understanding of CAN communication technology. It is also ideal for all those who plan to participate in Vector training courses of the VectorAcademy.
37 free learning units lead you step by step to a better understanding of CAN technology.
In addition to the CAN standard ISO 11898, there are a whole series of other protocols that can be set up on CAN or used with CAN. This also shows the manifold application possibilities of CAN in different application domains and industries.
CAN protocol that defines communication and device functions for CAN-based systems. CANopen is a standardized network architecture used in industries such as railway, medical, industrial, agriculture, heavy truck & bus, marine, off-highway, factory automation, aerospace.
With the ISO11898-2: 2016 specification, the wake-up pattern for classic CAN and especially for CAN FD networks has been revised: The new wake-up Pattern is significantly more robust than its predecessor from ISO 11898-5: 2007.
Our short article compares the wake-up patterns of the two ISO documents and describes how to create an appropriate wake-up pattern.
If you would like to get detailed information on CAN/CAN FD just visit our "CAN Fundamentals" seminar.
You will get a general introduction to serial bus systems in the motor vehicle and a basic knowledge of CAN (Controller Area Network). This includes the characteristics of the physical characteristics of a CAN network and knowledge about characteristics of the CAN/CAN FD protocol.
