RS232 to CAN Converter
CAN232 is a Serial Port to CAN adapter dongle that plugs into any PC COM Port, or RS232 port in an embedded system, and gives an instant CAN gateway. This means it can be treated by software as a standard COM Port which removes the need for any extra drivers. Data send and receive can be done in standard ASCII format.
The Serial Port to CAN adapter module now includes a bootloader, which allows users to develop their own software or do firmware upgrades to support new features.
