Updating CAN standards

ISO is updating the CAN standard to harmonise the Bosch CAN Specification with the ISO 11898 standard and the CAN Reference Model. It is intended to combine the CAN data link layer specification, the high-speed transceiver, and the fault-tolerant transceiver used in body electronics. The reviewed data link layer specification will include the implementation guidelines published by Bosch as an appendix to the CAN Specification 2.0. The Bosch CAN Specification including the appendix is published on CiA’s Website (www.can-cia.de). The CAN Conformance Testing specification is ready for balloting to become an ISO committee draft.
