The majority of our training classes are "hands-on" and involve a PC and dedicated training hardware, usually a microcontroller training board provided by our partner PHYTEC.

We cover a broad range of topics with our training classes (view our non-CANopen related classes). All classes can be customized to your requirements, for example a one day CANopen class. Use the "Get a Quote" button to let us know your requirements.

Our recent customers for training, consulting or prototyping services include Atmel, Crown, Delphi-Delco Automotive, General Electric Medical, General Motors, Hill-Rom, Infineon Technologies, John Deere, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Philips Infotainment, NXP Semiconductors, Schneider Electric, Siemens Automotive and others.

All training classes can be combined with consulting days. For example, an on-site visit for a week could consist of training for the first three days followed by consulting for the remaining two days.

Example Class: Embedded Networking with CAN One Day Class

This full-day class gives engineers a fast hands-on introduction into CAN. The hands-on part implements several examples for 8051 microcontrollers and uses a CAN analyzer for monitoring and stimulating the CAN bus. This class is recommended as a preparation for the CANopen class.
