The Chip164 is a powerful microcontroller module on a DIP socket. Its small size allows the Chip164 to be incorporated easily into standard DIL40 socket, or into the target hardware. The core of this module is the microcontroller Infineon C164. It is equipped with 128kByte Flash program memory, and 128kByte RAM for data storage. An on-board CAN transceiver allows a direct connection to a CAN-bus according to ISO11898. A version without CAN transceiver for isolated applications is available (see ordering information). The Chip164 can be programmed with the bootstrap loader of the C164 via the serial port in the circuit. The EASY215 is a version that has an integrated PLC operating system (IEC-61131-3 programmable). This chip contains a PLC-CANopen master functionality.
