PCAN-GPS

Programmable Sensor Module with CAN Connection

PCAN-GPS
IPEH-002110 € 240,00

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

The PCAN-GPS is a programmable sensor module for position and orientation determination. It has a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. The sampled data can be transmitted on a CAN bus and logged on the internal memory card. The data processing is performed by a microcontroller of the NXP LPC4000 series.

The behavior of the PCAN-GPS 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 is provided with a demo firmware that transmits the raw data of the sensors periodically on the CAN bus. The source code of the demo firmware as well as further programming examples are included in the scope of supply.

Requirements:


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