The adaption of the ECSS standard “ECSS-E-ST-50-15C – CANbus extension protocol” will be an important feature of future LibreCube on-board systems, to make on-board communication utmost robust and reliable. A milestone has been achieved with a prototype demonstrating master-slave communication. The slave node is connected to a GPS receiver and provides its information to the master node. Both are connected via a redundant CAN bus interface, and implemented an ECSS tailored version of the CANopen protocol stack.
