Kvaser took part in CAN in Automation’s (CAN CiA’s) second CAN FD plugfest between 6th & 7th April 2016 in Detroit, USA. The event gathered many of the CiA member companies that are implementing CAN FD in silicon or offering CAN FD interface boards, with a view to testing the interoperability of their CAN FD implementations using different topologies and transmission speeds.

Kvaser’s Research Manager, Kent Lennartsson successfully tested Kvaser’s CAN FD FPGA using different bit rate configurations, as well as one of Kvaser’s CAN FD compliant interfaces. Talking about the event, he reported: “About 20 different solutions were tested and no major problems were found. Proof of the robustness of CAN FD technology was that the shortening and lengthening of some critical bits didn’t result in faults. All in all, it was a good event and bodes well for the roll-out of CAN FD in the near future.”
