CAN Interfaces by IXXAT supports new CAN FD standard.
What is CAN FD?
CAN FD is an abbreviation of CAN "Flexible-Data". It integrates CAN in applications which require a higher data transmission rate compared to the use of CAN 2.0. To achieve this purpose CAN FD provides a flexible support on the number of data bytes per message based on the speed of the bus. At the same time, the important properties such as low cost, safety and reliability are kept. CAN FD offers two important practical advantages:
- CAN FD can be up to 64 bytes per message, compared to 8 bytes CAN 2.0.
- FD has CAN bus speed higher increasing it to an average of 6 Mbit / sec, against a maximum of 1 Mbit / s in the CAN 2.0.
CAN FD also supports CAN 2.0 (A / B), and, of course, CANopen.
The main reason for the development of the CAN FD is to meet the growing need of bandwidth requirements. The starting point is the gap between the standard CAN 2.0 (1 Mbit / sec) and FlexRay (automotive, 10 Mbit / sec) or (Industrial) Ethernet.
CAN was invented in 2012 by Robert Bosch GmbH and its partners. CAN FD has now become the standard ISO 11989-7. The market for microcontrollers with CAN FD will be introduced during 2013. It will also be optimized for CANopen CAN FD and available at the end of 2013.

ARM released the latest edition of the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5™ v5.9) toolchain with additional support for graphics analysis on ARM Mali Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). The toolchain can be downloaded by developers today, enabling them to achieve integrated optimization across the whole system, including both the applications processor and GPU.
The ARM DS-5 v5.9 toolchain provides significant benefits to semiconductor suppliers and OEMs, as well as mobile application and game developers, by enabling improved system visibility and decreased time-to-market. In particular, the ARM Streamline™ Performance Analyzer, within the DS-5 toolchain, allows developers to design more interactive interfaces and immersive game play for end users whilst extending battery life. This will enable next generation user experiences for use on smartphones, tablets, smart-TVs and set-top boxes.

Cambridge, UK: Keil announce multi-core debugging for NXP LPC4000 family of microcontrollers. The new NXP LPC4000 devices integrate a multi-core system consisting of an ARM Cortex™-M4 and a Cortex-M0 processor. This asymmetric multi-core system requires additional features from the development tools, in particular the debugger.
In the JTAG mode a LPC4000 system provides simultaneous access to the two Cortex-M processors using the ARM CoreSight™ debug/test interface. The Keil ULINKpro Debug and Trace Adapter together with the Keil MDK-ARM (Microcontroller Development Kit) enables two independent instances of the µVision Debugger to be run simultaneously. This enables the developer to analyze the application software of the two processors and to identify and correct complex inter-processor communication issues. Once these inter-processor communications are completed, the second processor may be seen simply as another peripheral unit.
Further code development can be done using only one instance of the µVision IDE/Debugger.

Based on a 120MHz ARM Cortex™-M3 processor, the STM32 F-2 series achieves 150 Dhrystone MIPS with 188µA/MHz dynamic power consumption.
The latest release of MDK-ARM supports all STM32 F-2 devices and includes set-up files, device-specific views, and example projects. MDK features the industry-standard compiler from ARM®, the Keil µVision4 IDE, the fully functional RTX RTOS, and analysis tools, which when used with the ULINKpro deliver code coverage and execution profiling. It is specifically optimized for single-chip, high performance devices such as the STM32 F-2 family.
