Package for the easy development of
customized applications on the CANio 250/500
As standard products, the CANio 250/500 represent an I/O gateway implementation in which the analog or digital inputs/outputs can be queried or triggered via CAN messages. The Application Development Kit enables creation of custom device applications with customer-specific functionality in the C programming language. Industrial controls or vehicle control devices can therefore be simply implemented without own hardware.
The CANio ADK contains all drivers required for communication via the CAN bus and for triggering the various inputs and outputs, which allows development of custom applications even without specific hardware know-how.
The drivers are delivered as a binary library together with a comprehensive C-source demo application. The demo application demonstrates use of the various functions and can be very easily extended according to individual requirements. As development platform an evaluation kit of the CANio 500 is included in the scope of supply.
Together with a development environment, available for free, and a low-cost hardware debugging solution, custom applications can thus be created, uploaded to the target and verified. On completion of the test and verification phase, the application can be uploaded to standard CANio devices. This is carried out via the CAN bus with the aid of the CANio configuration tool and the bootloader permanently installed on the devices.
We will also be pleased to develop adapted software solutions for customers based on the CANio 250/500. The custom software is delivered with documentation that allows further modification by the user.
