Programmable Sensor Module with CAN FD Connection

IPEH-003110 € 290,00

All prices are plus the at present valid value added tax!

The PCAN-GPS FD is a programmable sensor module for position and orientation determination with CAN FD  connection. It has a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. Incoming sensor data is processed by the NXP microcontroller LPC54618 and then transmitted via CAN or CAN FD.

The behavior of the PCAN-GPS FD can be programmed freely for specific applications. The firmware is created using the included development package with GNU compiler for C and C++ and is then transferred to the module via CAN. Various programming examples facilitate the implementation of own solutions.

On delivery, the PCAN-GPS FD is provided with a standard firmware that transmits the raw data of the sensors periodically on the CAN bus.


The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.
