The CANgineFD_BT features a powerful 32-bit Cortex-M4 microcontroller clocked at 80 MHz that supports CAN FD data rates up to 10 Mbps. Together with the built-in Class 1 Bluetooth module (100 m range), CANgineFD_BT is a cost-effective solution to connect CAN and CAN FD networks with a smartphone or tablet computer. Thanks to the Bluetooth serial port profile (SSP) and the well-documented ASCII protocol, integration into any Bluetooth-capable platform is a piece of cake, the vendor promises.

CANgineFD_BT will be available in two firmware versions. The generic version uses an extension of the popular Serial CAN Protocol (SLCAN) to send and receive any CAN and CAN FD telegrams at adjustable bit rates.

The CANopen FD firmware turns the CANgineFD_BT into a remote access device. Using simple serial commands all object dictionary entries on all CANopen FD devices connected can be accessed. This turns the CANgineFD_BT into a perfect device for the configuration or maintenance of CANopen FD systems.

ESS will presents their CAN FD Bluetooth adapter at embedded world 2019.
