  • Two Firewire ports
  • Audio amplifier

CFW2 version comprises:

  • Ten CAN bus ports
  • Two Firewire ports
  • Audio amplifier

The CFW design and manual are in the SVN repository.

The major components of the CFW card are:

  • CAN chip: SJA 1000, (see data sheet here)
  • PCI-bridge: PLX chip (see data sheet here)
  • Firewire: Texas (see datasheet here)
  • Amplifiers (see datasheet here). For two electret condenser microphones see here
