CANopen (FD) Master Protocol Stack

This is the documentation for the CANopen (FD) Master protocol stack, developed by MicroControl GmbH & Co. KG.

The protocol stack supports both, classical CANopen as defined by the standard CiA 301 and CANopen FD as defined by the standard CiA 1301. The behavior can be selected during run-time.

The CANopen (FD) Master protocol stack offers a variety of configuration options and forms the basis for controlling and monitoring complex CANopen (FD) networks. The functionality of the different CANopen (FD) services can be configured individually in order to achieve an optimal performance for different platforms and applications.


The CANopen (FD) Master protocol stack runs on top of the CANpie FD hardware abstraction layer. The CANopen (FD) Bootloader and CANopen (FD) Slave Stacks can run in parallel on the same hardware platform.

Overview of the documentation

The CANopen (FD) Master API overview gives a detailed description to the functions of the protocol stack. The examples section explains sample code that is provided with the CANopen (FD) Master protocol stack.

First steps to use the CANopen (FD) Master protocol stack are explained inside the Getting started section.
