After supplying all your Embedded Development
Tool needs for 42 years
Having reached the grand old age of 75 it is time to relax and fulfil other ambitions.
Its been an exciting ride with you, our customers, often on the
bleeding edge of technology
Stay well I wish you all success in your future projects.
But what to do with the web site ? It has taken >12 man years of work to create a repository of knowledge on many aspects of the art and science of embedded microprocessor development and even after closing the shop it still gets over 4,000 visitors per month. So as a service to my customers I have decide to keep it live providing my technical insights on the products and then redirecting viewers to sites where they can purchase the items they used to buy from us. Follow the link "Home"
The "Information zone" consists of articles produced as background tutorials on subjects of interest to those designing new products. As different CPUs have became available this has lead to new development techniques and in particular to new ways of communicating between nodes.
Industrial I/O Modules
These Industrial I/O modules use the PCAN MicroMod board described below to provide a ready made data acquisition system. They are available with a number of the most useful signal conditioning alternatives plus termination in an industrial case. At 51 x 60 x 20mm, they are suitable for a wide variety of applications.
Each unit is supplied with a MicroMod board installed on a signal conditioning motherboard in an all-metal casing. The electrical connections provide snap-in termination; with a screw connection as an option.
Status LEDs show power supply and a single digital output
Speed is settable up to CAN High Speed typically 500k Bits/s and up to 32 Modules may be put on a CAN network.
Standard supply is push in connectors, screw are available as an option.
A Peak Interface is required to load the configuration from a PC into the MicroModules Flash memory but only when the configuration is changed.
CAN Open compatible firmware is also available at no extra charge for all Industrial modules.
Versions are available to suite a range of needs.......
A flexible, small format, Analog and Digital I/O board with a CAN-Bus interface that is configurable via CAN without requiring any embedded programming skills. The Industrial packaged modules above include a case, baseboard with signal conditioning and a MicroMod
The PCAN-MicroMod board can be plugged into an application to provide control and monitoring services via the CAN-Bus. It provides the following
The integrated firmware provides simple configuration of the target system via a Windows utility program, the configuration data being sent to the module via CAN. No embedded programming skills are required to set up a system. Up to 32 PCAN-MicroMod boards can be put onto a single CAN network.
If required the firmware integrated on the board can be replaced with user designed software, a suitable C Compiler is available at no cost from the micro-controller manufacturer.
An optional evaluation board simplifies development of user designed carrier boards and also makes the MicroMod an ideal CAN evaluation tool.
A low cost starter Kit consisting of Parallel port interface, Evaluation Unit, MicroMod board, terminated cable and power supply (UK only) is available. It makes an excellent way to get started with CAN.
