The PCAN-Router Pro allows to join the data traffic from four High-speed CAN busses. The behavior of the router is configured via the CAN bus with the provided Windows program PPCAN-Editor. As well as pure forwarding, the CAN data can be processed, manipulated, and for example, filtered in a number of different ways. There are a variety of function blocks and other settings available to the user for configuration setup. Furthermore, there is a virtual fifth CAN channel which is used for recording all data traffic to a CompactFlash card.
As an alternative to the standard firmware which the PCAN-Router Pro is equipped with at delivery, custom firmware based on the ARM microcontroller NXP LPC2294 can be created and implemented. The scope of supply includes a library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++).
CAN transceiver modules in the PCAN-Router Pro allow a flexible adaptation of each CAN channel to the requirements. For example, Low-speed and Single-wire CAN transceivers are also available on request.
The configuration or the transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.
