What can I do with CANDIP/505?
  • CAN SLIO with your own protocol or with e.g. CANopen, DeviceNet, SDS, CAN Kingdom etc.
  • Smart nodes with PID algorithms for controlling e.g. temperature, motors or valves.
  • Data Acquisition via CAN. Add your favorite SPI/I2C ADC and collect data.
  • Home Automation. Build smart nodes for turning ON/OFF lights, burglar systems etc.
  • Add CAN simple in an existing system via e.g. SPI, RS-232 or your own way.
  • Education. CANDIP/505 offers a very low cost to learn CAN, we have many starter kits options.
  • If you have a customer who want to see a prototype or even a ready product next week.
  • Decentralized smart nodes for e.g. Robots.
  • CAN monitor in an existing system. Add some Leds and you could monitor e.g valves etc.
  • Standard 28 pin DIP board with 0.1" pins, so use a standard DIP28 carrier.
  • 4 layer board for good EMI performance.
  • Needs only a 5VDC/30mA power source (plus 70mA for CAN tranceiver*).
  • Infineon type C505CA working at 16Mhz.
  • 64k user FLASH, 1kbytes user XRAM and 128bytes user EEPROM.
  • ADC with 10bit resolution / 4 channels.
  • Software controller SPI port for expansion.
  • On chip fullCAN-Contorller (CAN 2.0B).
  • 82C250 High Speed CAN transceiver 1Mbit (ISO-11898).
  • MAX202 RS-232 transceiver.
  • MAX825M Reset circuit.
  • No interpreted software, it's programmed with compilers.
  • Posibilities to implement higher level protocols, such as CANopen, DeviceNet etc.
  • PC-Bootloader for program download in Flash-EPROM via the CAN interface.
  • Demosoftware for the individual hardware components.

* Current consumption for CAN tranceiver variates depending how many nodes that are attached, but should be dimensioned for 70mA.

The picture above shows the CANDIP/505 board (both sides) mounted with an C505CA, MAX202, MAX825, 29F010, 74HCT573 and a 82C250 CAN transceiver. You only need to apply power and connectors of your choice and you are up running. No hassle trouble shooting hardware while learning CAN.
