Using CAN Bus in Space Flight Applications

The controller area network (CAN) protocol is a proven, highly reliable communication system for harsh environments.

The CAN two-wire bus multi-master/multi-drop topology makes it easy to add additional functionality to a system while significantly reducing the number of wires associated with wire intensive point-to-point topologies.

This white paper examines the use of CAN bus in space flight applications, and discusses

  • the basics of the CAN serial communications protocol,
  • advantages of using CAN for satellite communications, and
  • the special requirements needed by a radiation tolerant CAN transceiver.
