CAN has been the communication standard for embedded systems in vehicles for years. In recent years, CAN is increasingly used in the automation area. More and more smart devices such as drones, autonomous vehicles are equipped with embedded CAN networks. To meet the demand of CAN ports, Innodisk launched the CAN module, EGPC-B4S1. It’s a M.2 2280 form factor module featuring four isolated CAN ports and supports the higher-level protocols J1939 and CANopen, suitable for industrial applications.

The modules are designed for harsh environment, comply with ESD protection, come with galvanic isolation, and shock/vibration certificates, said the company. The products provide hardware-software integration, software materials for customers to verify and integrate to their applications, including graphical user interface utility, loopback test program, application programming interface library, sample code, and SocketCAN driver. The modules also provide various form factors fitting different motherboards. In this online-only event, the company is also showcasing its Internet of Things technologies and solutions, including InnoOSR SSD which can restore the system with one click. Innodisk's transportation solutions that integrate advanced technologies from in-vehicle signaling, edge computing, and image recognition, will be presented with service, agriculture, and autonomous vehicle cases.
