MicroCANopen Plus

MicroCANopen Plus is a small-footprint, commercial-grade CANopen implementation with advanced features. Ideal for situations requiring medium configurability during run-time and great performance on any type of platform, and for building networks that include manager nodes, MicroCANopen Plus provides the most flexible solution. Auto-generated configuration from the EDS/DCF file makes its setup a quick and painless one-step process.

A regular CANopen stack will not work with CiA447! MicroCANopen Plus has a CiA447 add-on that provides the additional functionality used by the Car Add-on Devices profile.

Portable. MicroCANopen Plus is written in 100% standard ANSI C code allowing for straightforward porting. For targets without standard support packages, designers familiar with their target processor can easily perform the port themselves. Or, ask us for a quote to add support to your target!

Compact. ROM Specifications: 7K - 14K bytes (for CANopen Slaves) depending upon processor and options selected.

An Affordable Pricing Structure. MicroCANopen Plus offers a low, one-time fee and no royalties on deployed products and includes all source code with every purchase.
