CAN 2020 event: The future of CAN technology


CAN in Automation (CiA) is offering a series of events called: CAN 2020: The future of CAN technology. The events are a platform to inform and to discuss the future of CAN FD, CANopen FD, and J1939 on CAN FD.

Two events are scheduled in:

• Lyon, France on October 6;

• Utrecht, Netherlands on November 6.

The content of the CAN 2020 event covers basic technical information on CAN FD, the impact on higher-layer protocols like CANopen, J1939, etc., and the challenges for system designers, when using higher bit-rates. The event is dedicated to decision makers in device development, technical marketing, and system design.

CAN FD has become the solution because the automotive industry required more bandwidth and longer data telegrams for CAN networks. The first cars with CAN FD are expected to run off the production lines in 2020. Step-by-step CAN FD will replace ‘classic’ CAN.

Participation for members is free-of-charge. All other participants have to pay a small fee of €100.

Registration is via the CiA website:
