Why Choose CAN Bus Interface

The CAN (Controller Area Network) communication interface was first developed by Bosch in the 1980s in order to respond to the increasing number of electronic devices used in new cars. The CAN bus can connect and control the entire control system through the simple serial interface.

CANopen is a communication protocol and device profile specification for embedded systems which is common used in passenger vehicles, industrial automation, mechanical control, elevator, escalator, electronic equipment for aviation and navigation, etc. Winstar Smart Display CanTFT series already built in object dictionary on module.
