About this book

This book addresses the various challenges and open questions relating to CAN communication networks. Opening with a short introduction into the fundamentals of CAN, the book then examines the problems and solutions for the physical layout of networks, including EMC issues and topology layout. Additionally, a discussion of quality issues with a particular focus on test techniques is presented. Each chapter features a collection of illuminating insights and detailed technical information supplied by a selection of internationally-regarded experts from industry and academia. Features: presents thorough coverage of architectures, implementations and application of CAN transceiver, data link layer and so-called higher layer software; explains CAN EMC characteristics and countermeasures, as well as how to design CAN networks; demonstrates how to practically apply and test CAN systems; includes examples of real networks from diverse applications in automotive engineering, avionics, and home heating technology.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This edition comprises six chapters that cover the architecture, physical layer, data link implementation, higher-level protocols, applications, and testing. … Each of the six chapters provides a clear exposition of its subject. … All in all, this would be a welcome addition to one’s bookshelf and could be useful in an upper-level university course.” (J. S. Edwards, Computing Reviews, June, 2014)
