PCAN-MIO

The Multiple Input Output Module (MIO) is a universal, modular controller for use both in the industrial and automotive fields.

 

The module has two CAN interfaces as well as multiple analog and digital inputs and outputs. Incoming signals can be processed by the microcontroller and then forwarded to the CAN interfaces or output channels. For this purpose, the behaviour of the PCAN-MIO Module can be freely configured using a comprehensive Windows® software. A large number of function blocks and other settings are available to help the user in creating such a configuration.

 

A bus structure also enables expansion of the number of inputs and outputs with additional modules. Customer-specific requirements can be implemented in doing so.

 

Requirements:
The configuration requires a PEAK CAN interface.

MU-Thermocouple1 CAN

The Thermocouple measuring unit offers connections for 8 thermoelements for different temperature ranges (J, K, T).

PLIN-Slave

The PLIN-Slave is an evaluation board with an interface for a LIN 2.0 bus. The device also has comprehensive I/O functionality which is accessible through control and display elements.

 

The device is used in development and education, for example, for testing purposes or as a teaching aid for handling the LIN protocol.

PCAN-GPS

The PCAN-GPS is a programmable sensor module for position and orientation determination. It has a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. The sampled data can be transmitted on a CAN bus and logged on the internal memory card. The data processing is performed by a microcontroller of the NXP LPC4000 series.

 

Using the supplied library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++), custom firmware can be created and then transferred to the module via CAN. This gives a whole range of options for manipulation, evaluation, filtering, and routing of the data traffic.

 

On delivery, the PCAN-GPS is provided with a demo firmware that transmits the raw data of the sensors periodically on the CAN bus. The source code of the demo firmware as well as further programming examples are included in the scope of supply.

 

Requirements:
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.

PEAK-gridARM Evaluation Board

Grid Connect® has developed the ARM7 microcontroller gridARM™ as System on a Chip solution (SoC) aiming for embedded applications in the field of industrial communication. The PEAK-gridARM evaluation board is a Linux-based development platform for the gridARM™ microcontroller. It has connectors for Gigabit Ethernet, High-speed CAN, USB 2.0, RS-232, SPI, and I²C. Digital and analog inputs of the evaluation board are manipulated by push buttons and potentiometers. The microcontroller state as well as the states for supply and data traffic are indicated by LEDs. A board support package (BSP) for Linux gives access to the hardware resources of the PEAK-gridARM evaluation board.

 

The gridARM™ microcontroller by the U.S. company Grid Connect is distributed in Europe exclusively by PEAK-System.
