The CANgineBerry CANopen is an active CAN co-processor module that uses a regular UART communication channel towards the host system. With its independent 32-bit microcontroller, the CANgineBerry can easily execute CAN protocols with tough timing demands such as CANcrypt or CANopen with response times of under 10 ms.

Depending on the configuration, the CAN communication can be up and running within 50 ms after power-on, even if the host system takes significantly longer to boot.

Available firmware options at launch include a generic minimal CANopen Manager/Controller and a CANopenIA Device both based on the CANopenIA implementation. Within the next weeks we will also release a CANcrypt version of the popular Lawicel protocol (SLCAN).

The connection to the host system uses only four pins: Two for power (5 V) and two for the UART. The four-pin header row directly matches the Raspberry Pi pin layout, but also other common connectors, such as popular USB-to-UART converter chips/modules, if the correct voltage levels are used (5 V supply, 3.3 V signals).

  • The CANgineBerry is equipped with a custom bootloader allowing the installation of one of the firmware packages provided by Embedded Systems Academy. Check our web page for available firmware packages.
  • Two LEDs (green and red) indicate the network connection status.
  • EEPROM to store configuration data.
  • CAN termination configuration by jumper.
  • Based on a Cortex-M0 microcontroller.
The serial protocol between host and CANopenIA is the CANopen remote access protocol by Embedded Systems Academy. It supports reporting events (new data arrived on CANopen side) as well as reading and writing data of the local Object Dictionary.

The CANopen Manager performs automatic network scans, simplifying application code as it can directly access the data scanned.

CANopen Manager implementations also support read and write accesses to Object Dictionary entries of any node connected to the CANopen network. For more information visit our dedicated web page at
