The Inventra™ MCAN2 is a stand-alone controller for a Controller Area Network. It provides an interface between a microprocessor and a CAN bus which carries out all the actions of data encoding/decoding, message management, bit timing and resynchronization involved in transmitting and receiving data over a CAN network. The MCAN2 implements the BOSCH CAN Message Transfer Protocols 2.0A and 2.0B. Specification 2.0A is equivalent to CAN 1.2 and covers standard message formats (11-bit identifiers); specification 2.0B covers both standard and extended message formats (both 11-bit and 29-bit identifiers). The MCAN2 is broadly compatible with a Philips SJA1000 working in its PeliCAN mode. Its CPU interface is compatible with the Peripheral Virtual Component Interface (defined by VSIA) for ease of connection to a range of microprocessor buses.
