About the article


This project was stimulated by a recent series of CAN bus articles in Elektor Electronics. One of the articles in the series included a constructional project (pages 20–24 in the November 1999 edition), which described a CAN bus interface. This construction project is based on that article.At the fastest data rate of 1 Mbits/second the maximum bus length is 40 metres, whilst at the slowest speed of 50 kbits/second, the bus length can extend up to 1000 metres (1 km).

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
