January 16, 2012 -- A new core from CAST, Inc. adds new capabilities to the company's long-time support for the Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus Protocol. The CAN-CTRL CAN Bus Controller IP Core conforms to the latest, 2.0B CAN Bus Protocol and ISO ISO 11898-1 Data Link Layer specifications.

Users have fully tested products using the core against the ISO 16845 Road Vehicles CAN Conformance Test Plan to verify its correct and complete functionality.

The ASIC or FPGA CAST CAN core implements a hardware controller for the CAN data link layer, handling data framing, transmission, reception and synchronization, and error reporting. The new core adds a configurable number of acceptance filters, a single-shot transmission mode for lower software overhead and faster buffer reloading, and several features similar to the PeliCAN mode of the popular Philips SIA1000 discrete chip. The latter include several important error-diagnosis and system-maintenance functions, including a programmable error-warning limit and a listen-only mode for better data traffic analysis.

"CAN has been a steady seller for us for many years, with a recent surge of growth for more demanding automotive control and communication systems," said Nikos Zervas, Vice President of Marketing for CAST. "This new CAN controller core offers the features an performance designers are now requesting, coupled with easy integration and CAST IP product support."


Sourced from partner Fraunhofer IPMS, the core is available now.
