PSoC Eval kit speeds CAN and LIN component design

March 30, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Cypress Semiconductor's CY8CKIT-026 CAN and LIN Shield Kit features two CAN transceivers for high-accuracy, high-speed transmissions, two LIN transceivers and Arduino compatible headers.

Additionally, the kit includes five example projects that demonstrate the CAN and LIN capabilities of PSoC 4. The CY8CKIT-026 CAN and LIN Shield Kit enables designers to quickly create their own projects with easy-to-use CAN and LIN slave components in Cypress’s PSoC Creator Integrated Design Environment (IDE) or by altering code examples provided with this kit.

The IDE simplifies system design and accelerates time-to-market by enabling concurrent hardware and firmware design. PSoC Creator works with PSoC Components—free embedded ICs represented by an icon in the IDE—to enable rapid prototyping of end applications while minimizing PCB redesigns and firmware changes.

Users can access example projects by downloading and installing the setup file from
