Welcome to the CAN-bus Wiki project

CAN Interface collection

This collection is only for generic interfaces to the CAN bus. Traditional PC interfaces from internal PC busses to USB to CAN or wireless or whatever.
CiA maintains a Product Guide for products having a CAN bus interface like industrial IO, HMI, motion controllers …

A collection of CAN Interface API requirements.
