Developers can plug the CPU module into their motherboard and configure it with the PCAN-MicroMod FD Configuration Windows software included in the scope of delivery. The configurations are transferred to the PCAN-MicroMod FD via the CAN bus. Several modules can be configured independently of each other in a CAN bus. In addition to mapping the signals to CAN messages, the software also enables a variety of operations and processing functions for analog and digital I/O signals. Once the configuration has been transferred, the PCAN-MicroMod FD together with the motherboard forms an autonomous CAN node that can forward the information from sensors, actuators and switches via the CAN bus.
Together with the PCAN-MicroMod FD, PEAK-System is bringing a development board onto the market that is intended to facilitate the development of an individual motherboard. With the so-called PCAN-MicroMod FD Evaluation Board, users can access all resources of the attached PCAN-MicroMod FD via taps, screw terminals, switches and potentiometers and test configurations or test circuits.
The PCAN-MicroMod FD can now be purchased individually or together with the PCAN-MicroMod FD Evaluation Board. In addition, a kit is available that contains a CAN-FD interface for the USB port and a CAN cable in addition to the processor and development board. The company plans to release directly usable motherboards for specific applications by the end of the year.
