CAN in Automation (CiA) is the international users’ and manufacturers’ group for CAN (Controller Area Network), internationally standardized in the ISO 11898 series. In 1992, the nonprofit association has been established. The aim is to provide an unbiased platform for future CAN-related specifications and standards.
Established in March 1992, the CiA nonprofit association fosters the image of CAN technology. CiA members jointly develop specifications for different CAN application fields. The CAN community also finances CiA’s active participation in international standardization and organizes events in order to exchange knowledge and experiences. These opportunities for networking belong to the most important benefits of CiA membership.
CiA also offers other services. These include seminars and conferences, publications, CANopen testing, and last but not least the promotion of CAN technology.
