MEN Mikro F750 - 3U cPCI/CompactPCI® CANopen Interface Board

Single CAN Bus Interface, -40 to +85°C Operation


The F750 is a single Eurocard CompactPCI® CANopen controller; that needs only one slot on the CompactPCI® bus.

It features one CAN bus interface supporting ISO high-speed up to 1 Mbit/s. The physical interface is isolated from the system.

Master or Slave protocol configuration can easily be done by loadable firmware. The complete protocol stack is executed on the F750, and data exchange to the host is done via Dual-Port-Memory or DMA.

The F750 is based on the netX SOC. This highly integrated network controller supports parallel data transmission via several data paths between the internal CPU and graphics engines, and the communication and host controllers. The netX SOC also controls the on-board memory and other peripheral interfaces such as UARTS, USB, SPI or I²C.

Communication works via a dual-port SRAM interface and is supported by window and pointer access mechanism. Interrupts are available in both directions from F750 to host and from host to F750.

The F750 supports a wide range of operating systems including Windows®, Windows® CE, Linux and VxWorks®.

The F750 has been designed for mission-critical industrial and for mobile applications with demand for high resistance regarding temperature, shock and vibration.
