Carrier board with CAN transceiver

At 90 mm x 60 mm, the MMST02 carrier board from MAS Elettronica (IT) was designed for space constrained, portable embedded applications. It can accommodate the MCDM37xx, MCAM335x, and MCiMX6 modules.

THE BOARD FEATURES BOARD-TO-BOARD CONNECTORS for CPU MCDM37xx, MCAM335x and MCiMX6, one LAN interface, one USB 2.0 interface, a 3,5-inch LCD touchscreen, one CAN channel, one selectable EIA-232 or EIA-485, and one wireless module connector (GSM, UMTS, or Wifi). It also offers audio I/O, a Lipo 3,6 V battery with integrated charger, and power supply of 5 V or 3,3 V.

The carrier board supports SN65HVD234, which is a 3,3-V CAN transceiver by Texas Instruments (USA) used in applications employing CAN in accordance with ISO 11898. As a CAN transceiver, it provides transmitting and receiving capability between the differential CAN network and a CAN controller, with signaling rates up to 1 Mbit/s. The transceiver was designed for operation in especially harsh environments. The device features cross-wire, overvoltage and loss of ground protection to ±36 V, with over-temperature protection and common-mode transient protection of ±100 V. These devices operate over a -7-V to 12-V common-mode range with a maximum of 60 nodes on a bus.

Mas Elettronica was founded in 2008 and works in the field of embedded systems and ARM architectures. The company designs, develops and produces its own products starting from the initial concept, dealing with the hardware, software and mechanical design. The software team deals with embedded operating systems (Linux and Android) starting from low level software (boot-loader, drivers, etc.) up to final applications. The company designs and produces a range of CPU modules, carrier boards, and development kits.
