Advanced Micro Peripherals’ CAN104 implements a two port high speed CAN (Controller Area Network) interface in the rugged and reliable PC/104 form factor. The board contains two Philips SJA1000 CAN controllers with advanced features ideal for automotive and general industrial applications. 
CAN104 supports the so – called BasicCAN mode (power up default) and the enhanced functionality PeliCAN mode. In the PeliCAN mode the CAN104 handles all CAN frame types according to CAN specification 2.0B and provides error analysis functions to support diagnosis, system maintenance and performance optimisation.  
Applications include automotive instrumentation, industrial process and machine monitoring and control, test and measurement, data acquisition, vending machines, POS and ATM systems, building and lift management.  
The CAN104 also features an optional 802.11 Wireless LAN (WiFi) Controller which can be used for CAN-to-Wifi Bridging applications. CAN bit rates up to 1Mbit/s are possible. A message FIFO reduces load on the PC/104 host CPU. The controllers support 11-bit as well as 29-bit identifiers. Network termination is selectable and CAN104 operates from a single +5V power supply. 
A C/C++ library is available to ease development.
