  • 16 MHz clock frequency
  • Galvanically isolated physical interfaces
  • I/O mapped host interface using two addresses


The ECAN1000 CAN bus interface is implemented using the Philips SJA1000 controller. This controller supports CAN Specification 2.0. This versatile chip supports standard and extended Data and Remote frames; a Programmable Global Message Identifier Mask; 15 message objects of 8-byte Data Length and a Programmable Bit Rate. This fully integrated chip supports all the functionality of the CAN bus protocol. The internal 64 byte receive FIFO is ideal for block mode data transfer from the CAN controller chip. RTD provides drivers, example programs and diagnostics software for DOS, Windows, and Linux to decrease the time required for system development.

Industrial environments require galvanic isolation and bus filtering to provide reliable data communication and safety. The galvanically isolated physical interface is implemented using high speed Opto-couplers and a DC/DC converter. To protect the input from radiated bus noise a specially balanced bus filter is used. The bus connectors conform to the ISO11898 /2 specification. For more information please visit the CAN in Automation web site.

The ECAN1000HR is designed on a PC/104 form factor. An easy mechanical interface to both PC/104 and EUROCARD systems can be achieved. Stack your ECAN1000HR directly on a PC/104 compatible computer using the onboard mounting holes.

There is a 10-pin interface connector on the ECAN1000HR to directly interface to the galvanically isolated CAN-networks. This header is compliant with the ISO11892/2 specified pinout.
