Mouser now stocks the MR-CANHUBK344 Evaluation Board for Mobile Robotics from NXP Semiconductors.

The evaluation board is for mobile robotics applications such as AMR and AGV. Based on the Arm Cortex-M7 S32K3 general-purpose automotive MCU, the board features advanced safety, security, and software support. The evaluation board includes one 100Base-T1 Automotive Ethernet and populates all six CAN FD ports available on the S32K344 MCU. The six CAN ports are connected to three distinct types of NXP CAN PHYs and allow for direct comparison between standard CAN FD, CAN FD/SIC (signal improvement CAN), and CAN FD/SCT (Secure CAN Transceivers). Tunnelling CAN over Ethernet using IEEE1722 is one use case. Also on board is the SE050 Secure element with NFC and UART, SPI, I2C, PWM, and other GPIO accessible on DroneCode standard JST-GH connectors.

Applications for the board include automotive, industrial, and smart city applications, which feature agriculture equipment, vehicle management, and motor drives.
