<< CANopen Examples <<

To get first hand on experience with CANopen we offer a number of CANopen NMT slave examples for download.  These versions are download  files for different embedded platforms and embedded or PC operating systems.

All provided examples are tested with the latest version of CiA’s CANopen Conformance Test Tool. They are acting as an IO device according to CANopen profile CiA 401. The evaluation packages contain the application source code and the CANopen protocol stack as object library. The provided download demo archives contain the binary file, respective the binary executable, the Electronic Data Sheet (EDS) EDS-Datei and a detailed documentation describing installation and test of the example application. The instructions can be followed using a standard CAN tool. Even better if an CANopen Configuration Tool is available.

Examples containing Source Code for evaluating the CANopen API

DAVE™ example project for the  XMC4200 Actuator

An evaluation project for the XMC4200 Actuator Board implementing a CANopen device according CiA 401 is available. XMC4200Actuator Not only CAN but all periphery used by the 401 implementation is controlled by DAVE Apps. The CANopen Object Dictionary and the 401 application code is available in source code. The CANopen protocol stack as object code library with run time restriction. Download DAVE 3.1.8 project archive

DAVE™ projects  for XMC4400 und XMC4500

On request we are able to provide more DAVE projects Auf Anforderung können wir Ihnen weitere DAVE Projekte zur Verfügung stellen.

CoIDE example projects for STM32F4 Discovery

This project is realized using the freely available CooCox integrated development platform for Windows®. It is based on the STM32F4 Discovery board by ST Microelectronics and a base board containing the CAN transceiver and four mikroBUS sockets for click™ add-on boards. STM32 Development Board

EnergyBus Battery

The first project we offer is an EnergyBus battery implementation according CiA 454-6. Download CoIDE 1.7.5 Projektarchive

CANopen CiA 401 device

This is a basic CiA 401 example which can be extended with code for the click™ modules. For more information get the Readme_CoIDE_401. Download CoIDE 1.7.5 Projectarchive

Linux Evaluation Examples

Example for BORA evaluation with Zynq SoC

The example implements a CiA 401 slave with digital outputs controlled via /sys/class/gpio for the   DAVE Embedded Systems BORA SoC module . Unzip and look at the Readme-bora for more information.

Example for standard PC with Linux

We provide a self extracting shell archive for Linux. It contains the application source code in C and CANopen object code libraries for different target systems. With this approach changes on the application and the object dictionary are possible. Libraries are provided for typical 32 and 64 bit systems for Intel and ARM controllers. Compilation is controlled by a Makefile. Download package for Linux Evaluation

Binary executables

These Examples are provided as is in Hex or Elf format. They can be downloaded or flashed to the target system and tested using standard CANopen or CAN tools.
