CiA's 20th anniversary
CiA's birthday is celebrated at the 13th international CAN Conference (iCC) in Hambach Castle (Germany). At this conference the CAN-FD (flexible data-rate) protocol will be introduced. The backward compatible protocol breaks the 1-Mbit/s data-rate and allows longer payloads in a single frame (up to 64 byte compared with up to 8 byte). At the conference some silicon vendors will launch their CAN transceivers supporting partial wake-up functionality as standardized in ISO 11898-6. They will enable partial networking; this means the user is able to switch single devices on and off, in order to reduce energy consumption.
The CiA headquarters in Nuremberg (Germany) with 14 employees provides training courses and in-house seminars as well as several printed and online publications. Besides the established CANopen conformance tests, the association will offer CANopen interoperability tests. CiA is also represented in China (Guangzhou).
