With the PCAN router Pro, the data traffic of four high-speed CAN buses can be linked to one another as desired. The behavior of the router is configured using the included Windows program PPCAN editor via the CAN bus. In addition to the pure forwarding, CAN data can be processed, manipulated and, for example, filtered. For the creation of a configuration, the user has a large number of function blocks and other settings available. In addition, a virtual fifth CAN channel allows the recording of all data traffic on a CompactFlash card.
As an alternative to the standard firmware, which is provided with the PCAN router Pro at the time of delivery, it is possible to create and use its own firmware based on the ARM microcontroller NXP LPC2294. Included in the package are a library and the GNU-ARM-Toolchain Yagarto (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C ++).
