In CAN in Automation’s (CiA) Classical CAN/CAN FD seminars attendees learn how CAN works, which possibilities it offers, and in which markets CAN is used. The seminars introduce CAN as it is specified in the updated ISO 11898 standard series. This comprises the Classical CAN, the CAN FD protocol, as well as the updated CAN physical layer specification. Hence, impacts on CAN-based higher layer protocols are discussed. Two of these seminars are scheduled in the last quarter of 2018. One on 20 November 2018 in Antwerp (Belgium) in English language, The second one on 04 December 2018 in Nuremberg (Germany) in German.

CiA's CANopen seminars learn the basic principles of CANopen in order to select the right CANopen device for the user’s applications, to integrate their devices in a proper control application, or to design the intended CANopen device behavior. In addition, attendees get an overview on CANopen application fields as well as a base for assessing the effort of introducing CANopen in their projects. The first seminar takes place on 21 November 2018 also in Antwerp and the other one on 05 December in Nuremberg.

Attendees of a CANopen car add-on modules seminar get a basic understanding of CANopen system design in the application field of car add-on devices (e.g. interfacing the in-vehicle network, adding bluelights, printers, radio, etc.). In addition to the insight to CiA 447, the seminar covers a brief introduction to the basic CANopen services as well. It will take place in Nuremberg on 15 November.

All seminars last one day from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. You can contact the company at for more information.
