The PCAN-Router FD allows the connection to two CAN FD or CAN buses. Based on a ARM Cortex M4F microcontroller, the module's behavior and the data routing between both CAN FD channels is freely programmable. In particular, the module allows the conversion from CAN to CAN FD or vice versa. This makes it easy to accomplish the integration of CAN FD applications into existing CAN 2.0 networks.
Using the programming library and the GNU compiler for C and C++, a firmware is created and then transferred to the module via CAN. On delivery, the PCAN-Router FD is provided with a demo firmware. The corresponding source code is included as example in the scope of supply.
The module is installed in an aluminum profile casing, and is shipped with two D-Sub connectors. Also available with a screw-terminal strip, PCAN-Router FD w/ Phoenix connector.
