Innovative dual-PCB miniature module integrates CAN Bus and GPS
Changing markets continue to push technological and service innovations in connected cars, and many countries have imposed stricter laws on vehicle monitoring products in recent years, Apacer Technology, recognizing the dynamic growth potential of advanced automotive application systems, has developed the dual-PCB EFC-G/EFC-R module series which integrates CAN bus communication module and GPS functions. When used with on-demand telematics cloud SDK, it provides the control center with comprehensive smart automotive solutions, such as real-time fleet management, vehicle safety monitoring and driverless car monitoring.
Integrating CAN bus and GPS applications, the company’s innovative embedded PCIe module series can be adopted by vehicle computer systems faster, shortening time to market, due to its small size and low power consumption. CAN bus interface and GPS positioning assist the remote control center in monitoring vehicle status, including engine, car door, fuel consumption, mileage and driving safety, at all times. They also help to enable effective and real-time management of driver behavior. For instance, the implementation of ELD (Electronic Logging Devices) creates a safer work and riding environment for drivers and passengers, and enables faster, simpler and more accurate tracking, management and sharing of duty status information and driving record, reducing risk and business cost arising from human error and vehicle condition. Their embedded module series supports multiple serial protocols on the market, including OBD-II and J1939/J1708, and is equipped with independent two-channel CAN and one-channel J1708 interface. Its dual-PCB module design also provides flexibility for use in a space-constraint vehicle computer system.
