CANopen Stack Master & Slave Source Code CiA 301 - CANopen Protocol Stack

Fast & standard-compliant implementation of own CANopen devices

Inclusive NMT Master, LSS Master or SDO Clients

[DeepL] sysWORXX CANopen Master Slave Source Code

The CANopenStack Master & Slave Source Code contains the complete functionality according to the CiA specification 301. The CANopen Source Code supports a fast and standard compliant implementation of own, fully equipped CANopen Master or Slave devices including NMT Master (Network Manager), LSS Master (Layer Settings Service) or SDO Clients.

A high degree of performance is achieved by direct, event-oriented signaling down to the application level. The CANopen Stack Master & Slave Source Code is prepared for an easy integration into different operating systems by appropriate functionalities. This makes porting much easier.

The extensive and well structured API allows an easy usage of the CANopen services: You do not need to worry about the details in the implementation. The sample programs included in the package, the target-oriented demo projects and the comprehensive documentation guide you step by step.

A CAN driver porting, the implementation of specific demo projects or the adaptation of the CANopen software to not directly supported processors can be done within a few days. Please contact SYS TEC for further information regarding available options and services.

  • Modular, Scalable and Portable...

    The consistent modularization of the functionalities and the implementation in ANSI-C allow easy porting on different target systems. Great importance was attached to scalability and performance. A highly optimized memory management and "Zero-Copy" implementation prevent unnecessary copying of data. With our CANopen Source you can realize cost-effective single-chip solutions as well as complex multi-channel master applications. For example, our CANopen Protocol Stack has been successfully ported to a DSP in addition to numerous microcontrollers.

    The CANopen stack is organized into individual modules. These modules can be integrated into a project or removed, depending on the required functionalities. The modularization prevents overlapping of functions (cross-call) by clearly assigning subordinate or superordinate modules (callback function). There are no cross-references of global variables between modules. A central software layer called "CANopen Controlling Module" (CCM) provides a simplified API of the CANopen functions on the application layer and controls the interactions of the individual modules. In addition, the hardware-specific implementation is clearly decoupled from the CANopen protocol stack, making it possible to port a new target platform with minimal effort.

  • No royalties on own products...

    We offer an attractive pricing - you get the complete source code as well as sample projects as a buy-out license for an inexpensive one-time payment.

    The purchased license is site-bound and can be used by your developers at the site for various targets, projects and products. No further license fees are incurred.

    By extending the license , development partners and other locations of your company can also use the source code.

    Our update and support services can be extended annually - so your stack is always up-to-date.
