1 | Introduction to CAN
  • Electronification of motor vehicles
  • Primary tasks in bus networking
  • Standards and implementation
  • Node architecture, bus-connection and termination
  • Voltage levels and corresponding bit values
  • Physical failures
2 | Characteristics of the CAN Protocol
  • Addressing, message transmission and reception
  • Bus access method and arbitration
  • Message types, detailed description of the structure and functions
  • Increase noise immunity, neutralize errors
  • Error detection mechanisms
  • Error treatment & tracking
  • Motivation for the bit time interval
  • Relation of baud rate and length of the CAN bus
  • Synchronization and resynchronization
3 | CAN FD
  • Motivation for CAN FD
  • Message formats and structure
  • Larger data field and the consequences
  • Bit rate switching
4 | CAN Network Description
  • Usage and content of Network Description
  • Tools and Examples
