With the PCAN-MicroMod FD, PEAK-System Technik has produced a universal solution for the integration of a CAN FD interface and I/O functionality into custom hardware. Developers can plug the CPU module in their motherboard and configure it by the PCAN-MicroMod FD Configuration Windows software incorporated in the scope of supply. The configurations are transferred to the device via the CAN bus. Several modules can be configured separately of each other in a CAN bus. As well as mapping the signals to CAN messages, the software allows a mixture of operations and processing functions for analog and digital I/O signals. Once the configuration has been transferred, the device forms an autonomous CAN node with the motherboard that can deliver the information from sensors, actuators, and switches via the CAN bus.

With the PCAN-MicroMod FD, the company is launching an evaluation board onto the market that is designed to aid the development of an individual motherboard. With the so-called PCAN-MicroMod FD Evaluation Board, users are able to access all resources of the attached device via taps, screw terminals, switches, and potentiometers and test configurations or circuits.
