SONNAILLON, M. O. et al. Digital communication interface for an automotive application. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2005, vol.35, n.2, pp. 129-133. ISSN 0327-0793.
This paper presents the design and implementation of a digital communication interface between a Motor Drive Controller (MDC) and a digital network supervisor. This work is part of the DOE/CARAT project "Integrated Controllers for Automotive Auxiliary Electric Motors", being performed between the University of Arkansas and at GEA (Applied Electronics Group), National University of Rio Cuarto. The Controller Area Network (CAN) is the digital communication protocol of choice for automotive applications. The MDC was implemented using a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and the network supervisor using a standard personal computer (PC) with a CAN communication board.
