Controller Area Network (CAN) for Vehicle Applications e-Seminar

The Controller Area Network has become the standard of choice for most automotive manufacturers. Approved for use as an ISO and EPA diagnostic network, its usage continues to grow. This e-seminar covers the theory and use of the CAN protocol, and its applications in the automotive industry.


Instructor Mark Zachos presents details on how the CAN protocol and other standards (J2284, J2411, J1939, ISO 11898, etc.) complement each other. Validation engineers, test engineers, embedded programmers, and those who are currently or will be working with applications using CAN will benefit from the content on CAN application layers; the latest J1939, J2284, J2411, and IDB standards, regulations, and implementation requirements; and details of device hardware and software interfaces. Also presented is a demonstration using system development tools.

Based on the popular classroom seminar, this ten and a half hour course offers an introduction, six modules, and a Gryphon demonstration accompanied by a handbook with exercises. The SAE standards, J1939 Recommended Practice for a Serial Control and Communications Vehicle Network and J1939/71 Recommended Practice for Vehicle Application Layer, are included also as reference documents.

By participating in this course, you will be able to:
  • Apply CAN protocol
  • Demonstrate how CAN is used in various automotive applications
  • Use CAN-related standards and specifications
