In 2011, Bosch started the CAN FD (flexible data-rate) development in close cooperation with carmakers and other CAN experts. The improved protocol overcomes to CAN limits: You can transmit data faster than with 1 Mbit/s and the payload (data field) is now up to 64 byte long and not limited to 8 byte anymore.

Regarding this, what is the purpose of a termination resistor?

Termination Resistors: Because each differential pair of wires is a transmission line, you must properly terminate the line to prevent reflections. A common method of terminating a two-wire multidrop RS-485 network is to install terminating resistors at each end of the multidrop network.

What is CAN cable?

A Controller Area Network (CAN bus) is a robust vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other in applications without a host computer.
