CANopen: Das standardisierte, eingebettete Netzwerk by Holger Zeltwanger (WhoisWho) publisher hard cover,190p. VDE-Verlag ; ISBN-13: 978-3800728459; Thirteen authors have contributed to the first CANopen book in German language. The 260-pages book describes in detail the CANopen communication protocols and the CANopen device profiles. The authors have covered also the Layer Setting Services (LSS) as well as CANopen configuration tools. It was not intended to substitute the CANopen specifications, but shall make it easier to read them. The book introduces also into the CAN physical layer as well as the CAN data link layer protocol.
Embedded Networking with CAN and CANopen
by Olaf Pfeiffer, Andrew Ayre, Christian Keydel, Paperback, 537 pages, Annabooks/Rtc Books, ISBN: 0929392783
From the publisher: Providing a detailed look at both CAN and CANopen, this book examines those technologies in the context of embedded networks. There is an overview of general embedded networking and an introduction to the primary functionality provided by CANopen. Everything one needs to know to configure and operate a CANopen network using off-the-shelf components is described, along with details for those designers who want to build their own CANopen nodes. The wide variety of applications for CAN and CANopen is discussed, and instructions in developing embedded networks based on the protocol are included. In addition, references and examples using MicroCANopen?, PCANopen Magic, and Vector's high-end development tools are provided.

published by © 2015 CiA - not a book, but a booklet: from the Foreword: This dictionary briefly describes vocabulary and abbreviations used in CAN technology. It is not supposed to substitude any standard or specification. The dictionary may be used by CAN newcomers to understand technical articles, handbooks, etc. more easily without consulting standards and specifications. More than 300 words are explained. e.g all CiA CANopen standard and CAN related ISO numbers.
CAN dictionary is available in Russian Language

Back Cover text:
This is the first book to offer a hands-on guide to designing, analyzing and debugging a communication infrastructure based on the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus. Although the CAN bus standard is well established and currently used in most automotive systems, as well as avionics, medical systems and other devices, its features are not fully understood by most developers, who tend to misuse the network. This results in lost opportunities for better efficiency and performance. This book offers a comprehensive range of architectural solutions and domains of analysis. It also provides formal models and analytical results, with thorough discussion of their applicability, so that it serves as an invaluable reference for researchers and students, as well as practicing engineers. Offers the first comprehensive guide to bridging the gap between theory and implementation of the widely accepted Controller Area Network (CAN) bus;Provides examples and best practices for design of communication systems, as well as time and reliability analysis of communication on the CAN bus Improves the reader’s ability to design, analyze and debug a communication infrastructure based on the CAN bus;Focuses on the practical implementation of the communication stack for CAN and the implications of design choices at all levels, from the selection of the controller, to software development and architectural design.
