As promised, the ELM329L has now been updated to version 2.2. The new integrated circuit now:
- handles response pending (7F xx 78) replies
- shows CAN frequency in response to AT CS requests
- allows the response timeout range to be expanded 5x
- is able to define a CAN Extended Receive address
- has new W0 and W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
- has an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly
In addition, there have been several other adjustments to improve the experience. Please note that we have also changed the function of pin 11 to no longer perform a dual function, and we have removed the AT WM command.
We’ve been a little slow getting the ‘L’ version of our latest ELM329 CAN Interpreter out, but it will be coming soon. As with the ELM329 v2.2, the new ELM329L will:
- handle response pending (7F xx 78) replies
- have a modified AT CS command that displays the CAN frequency
- allow the response timeout range to be expanded 5x
- have the ability to define a CAN Extended Receive address
- have new W0 and W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
- have an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly
The new integrated circuit should be fully tested and ready in the next few weeks.
Well, we had a great few days with family and friends, and hope that you did too. We’re now back at work, filling the orders that were placed, and answering your emails.
Canada Post has begun a series of rotating walkouts here in Canada. This is affecting the mail delivery in various locations, and may well affect the delivery of your order.
While we do everything that we can to get your order to the Post Office in a timely fashion, we can not control what happens to it after it is handed over. When we email to say that your order is on the way then it certainly is, but it may be travelling a little slower than normal.
Apparently there have been significant delays at the border. It seems that Canada Post hands off our packages to the US Customs and Border Protections group, which in turn gives them to the USPS. Processing times through Customs and Border Protections has been longer lately:

We are sorry to say that there really is nothing that we can do about these delays.
The ELM329 Data Sheet iBook has been updated to show the changes in the new v2.2 chip. It’s available now on iTunes:
Links to this and other iBooks are also provided on the Data Sheets page.
As promised, the new ELM329 v2.2 IC is now available. The main additions were:
- it now handles response pending (7F xx 78) replies
- the AT CS command now displays the CAN frequency
- it allows the response timeout range to be expanded 5x
- there’s a new AT CER command to define the extended address receiver
- it has new W0 and W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
- it adds an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly
It’s now available for purchase from the ELM329 product page, or have a look at the data sheet to see what’s changed.
The ELM329 continues to be a strong seller in the CAN-only market, but we felt it was time that it was updated. The new chip sports the usual code improvements and bug fixes, and also adds several new features. To name only a few of the changes, the new ELM329:
- now handles response pending (7F xx 78) replies
- adds CAN frequency display to the AT CS command
- allows the response timeout range to be expanded 5x (AT STM5)
- provides a new AT CER command to define the extended address receiver
- adds new W0/W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
- adds an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly
Final testing of this IC is now underway, and the data sheet update has begun. We will be begin sales of the new ELM329 v2.2 in the next month or two.
Firmware version 1.4b of the ELM327 was introduced in 2010, and continued to be a very strong seller until the ELM327 v2.0 was released in 2013. Several larger customers did not want to go through retesting of their designs with the new v2.0 chips however, as their v1.4b products were working well. To accommodate these customers, we continued to offer the v1.4b product, in addition to any new ones.
A further 5 years has now passed and sales of the v1.4b product are at a point where we have decided to discontinue sales of it. Once our stock levels are depleted, we will be removing it from our web store.
Many thanks to all that have purchased the ELM327 v1.4b over the years. The ELM327 v2.2 is a pin and software compatible replacement, should you need one.
