From the editors' desk

[2015-02-20] You might have heard that in future we will not print the CAN Newsletter any longer. The digital age has reached us too, and from now on our newsletter will only be available as a pdf. To soften the blow, we have prepared a special edition for the Embedded World Exhibition.

This special edition will be printed and it will be available at our booth (Hall 1/1-608) during the fair from February 24 to 26. If you can't wait (and if you are not mourning the end of the printed version as much as we are), you can download the pdf version and have a look at the CAN products that the Embedded World has in store.
