MACH SYSTEMS co-organizes CAN FD conference in Prague


CAN FDMACH SYSTEMS is a co-organizing partner and a sponsor of a prestigious technical conference on CAN FD, a new revision of the CAN bus.

The conference is held on September, 24th 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic. The main organizer is the CAN in Automation (CiA) organization. The CAN FD Tech Day will be held in English and atendees can book their seats via event detail on CiA web site.

The purpose of this international meeting is to cover all topics from the physical layer to the application level of the CAN FD protocol. The speakers will report about the data link layer improvements and the impacts on the standardized higher-layer protocols such as CANopen and SAE J1939. In addition, they are open to answer questions and to discuss other CAN FD related topics.

CAN FD (CAN with Flexible Data-Rate) provides for higher Baud Rate (up to 8 Mbps) and longer dataframes (up to 64 databytes) than the current CAN 2.0B version. The usage of CAN FD will mainly be within the automotive industry, where the demand for a higher bandwidth has been gradually increasing over the years, and CAN 2.0B speeds are not competitive any more. CAN FD is therefore a competitive technology to, say, FlexRay network.

How to attend?
Please book your seat on CiA web site.
Once you have book a seat, you can also join a facebook event 🙂
