A Controller Area Network (CAN) is a high-integrity asynchronous serial bus system for networking intelligent devices. It is often used in automotive and industrial systems.The USB-CAN is designed to make a fast, simple way to communicate with CAN bus devices. Connected to a USB port on your computer or USB hub, the USB-CAN instantly adds an industrial CAN bus channel to your host system with easy plug and play (PnP) and hot plug features.
The USB-CAN provides a cost-effective solution for customers to enable communication with CAN bus devices. The solution designed by ARM Cortex-M0 32-bit microcontroller and the USB to serial chip makes it very flexible in handling small burst of CAN frames at a high speed.
The USB-CAN provides DC +5V 100mA and DC +12V 50mA power for external devices and does not require an external power supply. It is powered by a USB port.
