CAN XL Technology
CAN MOVES INTO 10 MBIT/S DOMAIN
Already Heard From CAN XL ?
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).

Higher Layer Protocols
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.
|J1939||Standard for networking and communication in the commercial vehicle. The focal point of the application is the networking of the power train.|
|CANopen||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.|
|ISO 11783||CAN-based communication on open networks for mobile use in the agricultural sector. ISO 11783 is a multimaster network based on CAN, whose protocol is harmonized with J1939.|
|XCP||Measurement and Calibration Protocol for optimal parameterization of ECUs|
CAN FD SIC Transceiver
What is a CAN FD SIC Transceiver?
This technology provides features for building complex network topologies at higher communication bit rates.
With just a few sentences we have summarized the most important for you.
Wake-Up Pattern in CAN/CAN FD Networks
Revised Wake-Up Pattern
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.
