CAN FD roadshow
The first stop of the CAN FD roadshow from CAN in Automation (CiA) was in Shanghai. About 80 engineers participated.
CiA has organized a CAN FD roadshow in China. There are scheduled stops in Shanghai, Nanjing, Shenzhen, Xi-an, Zhengzhou, and Beijing. HMS, Hongke/Peak, Microchip, and ZLG sponsored the roadshow. The presentation covers general introduction to the CAN FD protocol, recommendations for device and system design, as well as information about higher-layer protocols. The sponsoring CiA members exhibited their products on a tabletop exhibition.
“The roadshow start in Shanghai was successful,” said Holger Zeltwanger, CiA Managing Director. “The questions were detailed and challenging.” This means, the audience was already informed and seemed to have started device and network designs. The sponsors also reported first sales success of CAN FD interface products as well as tools.
Update: Next stop was Nanjing on 15 May with 120 participants.
