CAST, Inc. has announced the availability of a new Daughter Card for connecting a system using a CAN controller to the physical CAN bus.
The new CANFD-RxTx high-speed CAN FD Transceiver Daughter Card uses the Microchip MCP2562FD transceiver. This second-generation high-speed transceiver meets the automotive requirements of CAN FD bit rates exceeding 5 mbps, low quiescent current, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and electrostatic discharge (ESD). It also features a low propagation delay to support long bus lengths. The Daughter Card connects to a CAST or other CAN-compliant protocol controller via a 2x20 female pin connector—commonly found in FPGA and microcontroller boards—and to the CAN bus via standard DB-9 nine-pin D-subminiature connectors.
As part of CAST’s CANFD-RD CAN 2.0 and CAN FD FPGA reference design, the daughter card has been successfully tested in multiple CAN FD Plug Fests organized by CAN In Automation (CIA).
The CAN-CTRL Controller Core for CAN 2.0, CAN FD, and TTCAN offers wide PHY support available. Avery Design Systems Verification IP for this CAN Controller Core is available through CAST, in a bundle with a thirty-day free license for the VIP.
The CANFD-RxTx Daughter Card is ready for shipping now.
