Controller Area Network Solutions
CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial bus system, which was originally developed for automotive applications in the early 1980's. It is now used extensively in industrial control, medical, aeronautics, public transportation and more.
CAN Device Drivers
Quadros Systems offers device drivers for the CAN controllers integrated into popular microprocessors. These include the Analog Devices Blackfin family (ADSP-BF534, ADSP-BF536, and ADSP-BF537), the Freescale ColdFire family (MCF521x, MCF523x, MCF528x, and MCF548x) NXP LPC series, STM32, and the Infineon C16x family.
This low level support is ideal for customers who want to implement their own CAN protocol solution.
CANopenRT -- Real-time CANopen Solutions
For customers who want a complete, real-time CANopen solution, Quadros Systems has partnered with IXXAT Automation to integrate CANopenRT with the RTXC Quadros real-time operating system. CANopenRT is a version of the CANopen protocol software designed for real-time implementations. CANopenRT contains all functions necessary for implementing slave or simple master devices according to the CANopen specification DS301, version 4.02.
The tight integration with the RTXC Quadros RTOS allows CANopenRT to be used within a rich spectrum of application types, from the simplest CANopen nodes to control applications where complex and concurrent tasks have independent access to the CANopen protocol . These applications include sensor and actuator units, drives, MMI units, and other devices that require CANopen Slave and/or Slave/Master functionality.
The CANopenRT protocol software is available in two different packages with different ranges of functions:
The master/slave package has the complete range of functions and can be used for the development of both pure slave devices and simple master devices.
