|PC Card Storage Device for CAN-Bus
With DOS-Drive CAN a completely new read/write device is available, which reduces development time and makes ATA Flash Cards available for a wide variety of systems.
DOS-Drive CAN organizes files and folders in DOS format. Therefore it is easy to maintain machine data and prescriptions under Windows operating systems.
ROBUST STORAGE MEDIA:
For data storage, ATA Flash Cards from SanDisk are used, which are well known for their reliability and robustness. At present, capacities between 8 MB and 2 GB are available.
FLEXIBLE HOST INTERFACE:
DOS-Drive CAN offers two separate interfaces which can be used alternatively:
Configuration of the device is done with a PC program via the RS232-interface
DOS-Drive CAN supports CAN 2.0B (active). By default, High-Speed CAN-Bus (ISO 11898) is used. Two identifiers are required for communication. The following CAN-Bus Parameters can be configured via the serial interface :
These parameters can be adjusted to the requirements of specific target systems by a utility program from the DOS-Drive CAN SDK (software development kit). The parameters remain in non-volatile memory until their next change.
Alternatively, the DOS-Drive CAN can be connected to the host system via the serial interface. The serial connection uses no separate control lines. The DOS-Drive CAN automatically detects the baud rate being used by the host system. Transmission rates up to 115.200 Baud are supported.
FULLY DEVELOPED COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL:
For communication between host system and DOS-Drive CAN, a simple and secure protocol is used, which is implemented for CAN- and RS232 interface. The protocol allows for comfortable access to functions of the DOS FAT file system. Therefore, DOS-Drive CAN is highly independent from the architecture of the host system and requires only a minimum of resources.
Special measurements have been taken to ensure a high level of data integrity even with intermittent disconnections in power supply. In such a case the device will be able to complete an interrupted transaction on the next power-up. All files that have been left open will be closed.
DOS-Drive CAN supports a wide variety of DOS file functions:
DOS-Drive CAN offers the following special functions, which are accessible with protocol functions:
SUPPORT FOR DESIGN-IN
Usually, the DOS-Drive CAN will be integrated as an OEM component in specific target systems. Therefore, the standard shipping contents is reduced to the essential.
Integration into a target system is a one-time process. Therefore, the documentation and application samples are offered as a separate product DOS-Drive CAN SDK (Software Development Kit), which has to be purchased only once:
Additionally some tools are provided for the integration of the serial communication:
