EtherCAT ®Master Stack

esd electronics, Inc proudly announces new addition to their EtherCAT® product line; the EtherCAT® Master software - designed with respect to high performance, small resource usage and scalability.

EtherCAT® is an Ethernet-based fieldbus protocol optimized for high-speed, real-time industrial control based on a Master/Slave configuration. The EtherCAT® Master device requires only a standard Ethernet MAC, even without dedicated communication co-processor.



esd electronics, Inc is pleased to feature the PMC-CAN/400-4. This board has four electrically isolated CAN High-Speed interfaces. A FPGA with optional integrated 32-bit microcontroller handles the local data control and management, and the PMC-CAN/400-4 offers high-resolution hardware timestamps. There is an IRIG-B interface offering inputs for analog or RS-422 IRIG-B coded signals. Both are electrically isolated. An additional microcontroller controls IRIG-B evaluation. A Conduction Cooled version of the PMC-CAN/400-4 is also available.

CAN-PCIe/200 CAN-PCIe/200
esd electronics, Inc is proud to announce a new product, CAN-PCIe/200, a PCI Express hardware interface for Controller Area Network (CAN) designed to the highest standards for industrial applications. This is a low cost, fully ISO 11898 compliant passive CAN interface board for PCI Express with one CAN interface (optionally two CAN interfaces) that allow data transfer rates up to 1 Mbit/s.

The CAN interfaces are electrically isolated and the bit rate can be set by software. Software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, and QNX.


CAN, CANopen, J1939 Literature esd electronics, Inc is also pleased to report the release of three exciting publications:
A Comprehensible Guide to J1939 A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network Embedded Networking with CAN and CANopen
A Comprehensible Guide to J1939 by Wilfried Voss is the first work combining profound information on the J1939 message format and network management with a high level of readability. SAE J1939 is a higher-layer protocol based on Controller Area Network (CAN) and has become the accepted industry standard and the vehicle network technology of choice for off-highway machines in applications such as construction, material handling, and forestry machines.   A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss represents the most thoroughly researched and most complete work on CAN available in the marketplace. It includes A Brief History of CAN, Main Characteristics, Message Frame Architecture, Message Broadcasting, Bus Arbitration, Error Detection & Fault Confinement, CAN Physical Layer, and more... Embedded Networking with CAN and CANopen by Olaf Pfeiffer, Andrew Ayre, and Christian Keydel provides a detailed look at both CAN and CANopen; this book examines those technologies in the context of embedded networks. CANopen is a higher layer protocol based on CAN that provides the means to apply CAN features to industrial-strength applications - particularly users that demand a high degree of safety or reliability requirements (e.g. medical engineering, robots, lifts and transportation systems).
