The CAN Core implements a CAN as specified in the CAN Specification 2.0B (Bosch, Sep 1991). In addition the optional Time Triggered Communication (TTC) as specified in the ISO 11898-1 is also implemented.
The Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial communications protocol which efficiently supports distributed realtime control with a very high level of security.
Its domain of application ranges from high speed networks to low cost multiplex wiring. In automotive electronics, engine control units, sensors, anti-skid-systems, etc. are connected using CAN with bitrates up to 1 Mbit/s. At the same time it is cost effective to build into vehicle body electronics to replace the wiring harness otherwise required.
ARINC 825 is the "General Standardization of CAN (Controller Area Network) Bus Protocol For Airborne use". The CAN Core can be used in these type of applications when required by the system.
