Port GmbH is expanding its CANopen driver portfolio and is now supporting the STMicroelectronics STM32G4xx family. The STM32G4 series combines a 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M4 core (with FPU and DSP instructions) at 170 MHz in combination with three different hardware accelerators: ART Accelerator ™, CCM-SRAM routine booster and mathematical Accelerators.
port´s CANopen driver supports CAN Multiline, so that several CAN channels can be operated simultaneously. 11+ and 29bit IDs are also supported. The Keil ARMCC v5.26 – µVision5 was used as compiler / IDE. The driver was developed so that it can use the HAL drivers (STM32Cube_FW_G4_V1.1.0) of the STM32CubeG4 firmware package.
Together with the CANopen stacks from port, both the master / slave version or just the slave version can be used.
For easier integration of the CANopen library in connection with the CANopen driver “STMicroelectronics STM32G4xx family”, the version of the Next Generation Port Design Tool – also called Industrial Communication Creator in the future – is available.
The CANopen Design Tool is a tool for the fast and cost-saving development of CANopen applications (devices). It generates an object dictionary and an initialization function in C code, an electronic data sheet and the documentation of the project with just a few mouse clicks. It is also used to configure the CANopen Library and the CANopen Driver Packages.
