After supplying all your Embedded Development
Tool needs for 42 years
Having reached the grand old age of 75 it is time to relax and fulfil other ambitions.
Its been an exciting ride with you, our customers, often on the
bleeding edge of technology
Stay well I wish you all success in your future projects.
But what to do with the web site ? It has taken >12 man years of work to create a repository of knowledge on many aspects of the art and science of embedded microprocessor development and even after closing the shop it still gets over 4,000 visitors per month. So as a service to my customers I have decide to keep it live providing my technical insights on the products and then redirecting viewers to sites where they can purchase the items they used to buy from us.

The "Information zone" consists of articles produced as background tutorials on subjects of interest to those designing new products. As different CPUs have became available this has lead to new development techniques and in particular to new ways of communicating between nodes.
This page covers some of the software support available for the Peak range of CAN interfaces
Free PEAK CAN Software The PCAN-Basic DLL, a range of OS drivers and PCAN-View bus diagnostic package are all supplied free with all Peak interfaces.
PCAN-Explorer A sophisticated CAN bus logging and diagnostic package for use with complex applications including GUI and J1939 support.
PCAN-Trace Used to log and then play back CAN sequences in real-time.
PCAN-Symbol Editor Used to document CAN messages and fields using symbolic names.
PCAN FMS Used to simulate, test and diagnose the FMS and FMS-Bus standards
CAN OPEN Monitor and control CAN OPEN networks
LabView Run the Peak interfaces under LabView
Linux Free Linux Drivers are available for all the Peak CAN interfaces
PCAN-Developer A multi threaded advanced PC Driver for high demand applications
PCAN-Link Allows Peak CAN interfaces to be driven and controlled across a TCP/IP network
This package provides simple control and monitoring of a CANopen network.
All the features shown above for control and monitoring of a CANopen network with major enhancements in the user interface.
The PCANopen Magic PC Developer's Kit allows PC based applications using CANopen to be quickly and easily developed without needing to know all the details of CANopen. The kit consists of a CANopen DLL and real time PEAK CAN drivers along with documentation, a C header file and library/import files for two popular PC development systems. The CANopen DLL implements the CANopen functionality and uses the PEAK CAN driver to communicate with the CAN interface. It can be used to develop CANopen masters as well as a wide range of CANopen applications. No direct access to the CAN interface is provided it can only be operated via CANopen calls preventing any users conflicting with the CANopen protocol. No licence fee is required for multiple end applications.
If you are developing an embedded application that needs to be CANopen compliant then contact us for details of a ready made CANopen Stack.
These drivers work with all the Peak interfaces here is an example application.
Linux drivers are freely available for all of Peaks CAN interfaces. To run under Linux follow this link

The free PCAN Symbol Editor provides clearly structured
menus and a graphical representation of message layout for you to easily
document your CAN message structures. When used with Explorer those messages
are then displayed in simple symbolic form with any defined scaling or the
selection from lists of values (Enums). Multiplexed messages are
handled ( ie where one field dictates the layout of the following
message ). Supports J1939 if used with Explorer.
