This paper presents various modeling approaches
applicable to the key hardware components of a CAN
bus. It also provides examples of simulation-based
techniques for CAN signal integrity design including:
Analyzing static and dynamic features of transceivers, lines and other components, examining termination strategies, and characterizing data delay vs. intermediate-node stub-length, and assessing Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection capability of Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) components.
