The VME360 CANbus controler is a 6U VMEbus board based on four SJA1000 CANbus controllers. Each SJA1000 provides an interface to the popular CANbus that supports both standard (11-bit) and extended (29-bit) identifier fields. Front panel LEDs provide diagnostical network information. The VME360 provides four CANbus interfaces. The CAN network is a serial communication protocol which efficiently supports distributed control with a high level of reliability.
This VMEbus board has a 6U form and is also available as 3U VMEbus board.
