Universal Plug-in Module with I/O and CAN FD Interface

PCAN-MicroMod FD



The PCAN-MicroMod FD is a small plug-in board with CAN and CAN FD connection on the one side and various physical inputs and outputs on the other side. The logical linking of both sides is done by the microcontroller NXP LPC54618. With the PCAN-MicroMod FD, electronics developers can easily integrate I/O functionality with CAN connection into their project.

The PCAN-MicroMod FD is configured using the supplied Windows software. In addition to simple I/O mapping to CAN IDs, function blocks are also available for processing the data. The configuration created on the computer is transferred via the CAN bus to the PCAN-MicroMod FD which then runs as an independent CAN node. Multiple modules can be configured independently on a CAN bus.

For the PCAN-MicroMod FD, ready-to-use motherboards in an aluminum housing and an evaluation board for the development of own applications are available. All PCAN-MicroMod FD products can alternatively be operated with CANopen firmware.


The configuration requires a PEAK CAN interface.
