CAN FD Tech Days in Hamburg and Prague

The CAN FD Tech Days inform about the next generation of CAN technology in depth. Speakers from various CiA-member companies discuss different aspects of CAN FD networking in detail – from product development via system design to testing. The automotive industry is committed to using the CAN FD protocol to overcome the Classical CAN limitations regarding bandwidth and single frame’s payload.
CiA has scheduled several CAN FD Tech Days. The next events will take place in Hamburg on September 22, 2015, respectively in Prague on September 24, 2015. The one-day events are accompanied by a tabletop exhibition.

More information is available here.

A remark to our new website!

Unfortunately, we have some problems with our website. The registration forms do not work (just those for the seminars and with some limitations also those for the iCC). We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. Also the order forms for literature and the subscription forms for our publications do not work correctly. It is a great pity, but we cannot fix the problems as quickly as we hoped.

We are also very sorry that the CiA member and the CANopen vendor ID lists are not completely available. They are generated more or less automatically from our database. But this is not working with the content management system, which we use for our website design. Another not yet solved problem is the registration for non-members interested in downloading the public available specifications. Also the member login is only possible via the “old” CiA internal website.

As work-around we suggest to use the old-fashioned email communication (headquarters(at)can-cia.org). Send your request and we will respond to it as fast as possible. We try to respond within 24 hours, except the weekends.

Software engineering

Women drive software technology: Lady Ada of Lovelace is regarded as the first programmer. Grace Hopper invented the first compiler and Margaret Hamilton coined the term software engineering. Unfortunately, in the September issue is no female author. Nevertheless, there are some interesting articles about software engineering. Two of them deal with ODX (Open Diagnostic data Exchange), an XML-based, machine-readable data format.

The product guides are structured according to a nomenclature in order to make it as easy as possible to find the desired product information. The online magazine reports recently launched CAN products.
