CAN (Controller Area Networks)

Is a high-integrity serial data communications bus for real-time control applications

Operates at data rates of up to 1 Mega bits per second

Was originally developed for use in cars, Is now being used in many other industrial automation and control applications

Fields in a CAN Frame
A Standard CAN Frame consists of seven different bit fields:

  • A Start of Frame (SOF) field - which indicates the beginning of a message frame.
  • An Arbitration field, containing a message identifier and the Remote Transmission Request (RTR) bit. The RTR bit is used to discriminate between a transmitted Data Frame and a request for data from a remote node.
  • A Control Field containing six bits:
    * two reserved bits (r0 and r1) and
    * a four bit Data Length Code (DLC). The DLC indicates the number of bytes in the Data Field that follows
  • A Data Field, containing from zero to eight bytes.
  • The CRC field, containing a fifteen bit cyclic redundancy check code and a recessive delimiter bit
  • The ACKnowledge field, consisting of two bits. The first is the Slot bit which is transmitted as recessive, but is subsequently over written by dominant bits transmitted from any node that successfully receives the transmitted message. The second bit is a recessive delimiter bit
  • The End of Frame field, consisting of seven recessive bits.

    Following the End Of Frame is the INTermission field consisting of three recessive bits

  • Data Rate vs Bus Length

    The rate of data transmission depends on the total overall length of the bus and the delays associated with the transceivers. For all ISO11898 compliant devices running at 1Mbit/sec speed, the maximum possible bus length is specified as 40 Metres, For longer bus lengths it is necessary to reduce the bit rate. To give some indication of this the following numbers are from the DeviceNet features list:

  • 500 K bits per second at 100 metres (328 ft)
  • 250 K bits per second at 200 metres (656 ft)
  • 125 K bits per second at 500 metres (1640 ft)
  • Inter Integrated Circuits (I2C)
    • two-wired bus originally to interact within small num. of devs (radio/TV tuning, ...)
    • speeds:
    – 100 kbps (standard mode)
    – 400 kbps (fast mode)
    – 3.4 Mbps (high-speed mode)
    • data transfers: serial, 8-bit oriented, bi-directional
    • master/slave relationships with multi-master option (arbitration)
    • master can operate as transmitter or receiver
    • addressing: 7bit or 10bit unique addresses
    • two-wired bus
    – serial data line (SDA)
    – serial clock line (SCL)

    Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

    A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only.The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/MakefileNew set of files to be createdCreate a new directory newcall/ inside the path “/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call

    Installing TexLive 2019 in Ubuntu 18.04

    Installation of TexLive 2019 in Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)
    TeX (Tech)

    Installation of TexLive 2019

    Please watch the video for full installation



    I used .iso file to download, the Total size is 3.3GB for Linux,

    and i used the torrent file to download, it took me just 20 min to download the entire .iso file

    Extract the .iso file to a folder and open a terminal

    $] sudo ./install-tl
    (it goes into a terminal mode, which is faster compared to the GUI Mode)

    $] sudo ./install-tl -gui
    after the installation, set the PATH, MANPATH and INFOPATH as suggested by LATEX

    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2019/bin/x86_64-linux
    export MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/man
    export INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/info

    put these lines in to the /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc

    $] gedit /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
    We have installed TexLive 2019 and texstudio.

    To install texstudio

    $] sudo apt install texstudio
    The look and feel of TexStudio looks like this image.
