Using the supplied library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++), custom firmware can be created and then transferred to the module via CAN. This gives a whole range of options for manipulation, evaluation, filtering, and routing of the data traffic.
On delivery the PCAN-RS-232 is provided with a demo firmware that routes from CAN to RS-232 and vice versa. It allows to configure the data transfer as well as the hardware with serial control commands. The corresponding source code is included as an example in the scope of supply.
NXP LPC21 series microcontroller (16/32-bit ARM CPU)
External 32 kbyte EEPROM
High-speed CAN channel (ISO 11898-2) with bit rates from 40 kbit/s up to 1 Mbit/s
Complies with CAN specifications 2.0 A/B
Data transfer between CAN and RS-232 with a maximum bit rate of 115,200 bit/s
One digital input and one digital output (low-activ)
2-color LED for status signaling
Connection via a 10-pole terminal strip (Phoenix)
