The CAN network (Controller Area Network) is a solid vehicle network designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other in applications without a host computer.  

We have always developed networks in the automotive field allowing a modern vehicle (may have up to 70 electronic control units (ECU) for various subsystems) to communicate with all its components..

These types of networks are used in each sector:

  • Automotive
  • Agricultural / Heavy Duty
  • Naval

Automotive

Agricultural / Heavy Duty

Naval

The main control unit is the engine control unit (ECM), to which are connected the instrument panel (DSB), the transmission (TCU), and all secondary control units that control the vehicle's functions. The connection between the control units is essential and we are at the forefront of designing and developing the entire network, the proprietary message database and the communication protocol.

The reference standard is SAE-J1939, which defines message length, transmission speed, etc. Depending on the field of use, ISO 11783 (ISOBUS) for agricultural use and NMEA 2000 for the Naval sector are derived.
For all three standards we have an internally developed communication stack, but we are able to interface with third party stacks.
