Controller Area Networks (CAN) adopt bit stuffing at the physical layer, thus introducing a frame length variability that may adversely affect sensing and actuation jitter. One way to mitigate this issue is to encode the payload by means of a suitable run length limited code, before transmission. In this paper, a family of these codes is defined and thoroughly analyzed from the theoretical point of view, showing its optimality within a set of performance and footprint-related constraints typical of contemporary embedded systems. Experimental results confirm that the proposed technique is amenable to an efficient and deterministic software-based implementation.
