Bring communication and connectivity in your embedded design to the next level with Microchip’s Controller Area Network (CAN) bus solutions Technology. Originally created for automotive applications, the CAN serial bus protocol is a high-speed, reliable communication protocol for applications requiring robust communications at bit rates reaching 1 Mbps. Incorporating the CAN protocol into your design is a low-cost, reliable way to function in a difficult electrical environment with a high degree of real-time capability.
Microchip offers a complete line of products to meet the needs of high-performance embedded applications using the CAN protocol, including 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers and 16-bit digital signal controllers (DSCs) with integrated CAN, stand-alone CAN controllers, CAN I/O expanders and CAN transceivers.
With easy-to-use development systems, code examples, drivers and application notes, Microchip provides a total CAN solution that enables low-risk product development, lower total system cost and faster time to market for your high-performance, embedded design.
Vector CANbedded™ and osCAN™ development solutions support Microchip PIC18, PIC24H, dsPIC30F and dsPIC33F microcontrollers with embedded CAN Controllers.
Microchip offers a complete line of 8-bit MCUs, 16-bit DSCs/MCUs and 32-bit MCUs to meet the needs of high-performance, embedded applications using the CAN bus. Microchip’s portfolio of 8-, 16- and 32-bit MCUs and 16-bit DSCs with integrated CAN 2.0B functionality allows execution of complex control algorithms and network interfaces on the same device. On-chip peripherals include A/D converters, comparators, 10/100 Ethernet MAC, hi-speed USB 2.0 Host/Device/OTG, motor control PWMs, CTMUs, USART (RS485, RS232,LIN) and Master I2C/SPI/I2S.
