Some technologies never become obsolete. Just like fine wines, they mature and refine with age, waiting to be rediscovered and appreciated in new and imaginative ways by the next generation of enthusiasts. Controller Area Network (CAN) is one such technology. A workhorse of the automotive industry, it continues to function as effectively and reliably today as it has for the past several decades.

Here at Maxim, we think it’s time to bring CAN back into the limelight, give it the acclaim it deserves and the opportunity to be reinvented in innovative and diverse applications. That’s why we assembled the following collection of resources to allow you to quickly benefit from our years of experience working with and improving CAN, including showing you how it can be adapted for use in a very contemporary application.
