CAN XL - Simplify complex tasks in embedded networking

CAN XL is intended as backbone network in embedded and deeply embedded control applications. It is prepared for an easy integration into TCP/IP-based networking architectures. CAN XL provides some new protocol-embedded higher-layer functions such as e.g. the differentiation of several "groups of same concerns", across local network boundaries. Additionally, these groups may share secrets, based on the embedded cybersecurity function CANsec. The presentation will present how CAN XL features ease the life of system integrators in future.
