CAN in Space Workshop, hosted by Sitael S.p.A, Mola di Bari, ITALY
Space avionics systems are witnessing a change from highly centralized intelligence to distributed autonomous functions, thanks to the availability of high capacity FPGAs and microcontrollers that offload tasks alternatively concentrated in the on-board computer. The glue of this change are the command and control buses, and a similar process led in the late 80s to the development and successive adoption of CAN as an automotive and industrial automation bus.
Following the ever-increasing success and industry interest ESA is organised a dedicated ‘CAN in Space’ workshop hosted in SITAEL Headquarters.
