CANSPI Board is a CAN development tool for microcontrollers with SPI interface.
The Board includes MCP2515 CAN controller and MCP2551 transceiver.
IDC10 connector enables easy connection with peripheral modules.
MCP2515 is a stand-alone CAN controller. It is connected to microcontrollers via an industry standard Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). It is capable of transmitting and receiving both standard and extended data and remote frames. The CAN controller also has two acceptance masks and six acceptance filters that are used to filter out unwanted messages, thus reducing the host MCUs overhead.
Examples provided with this board will show you how to connect the MCP2551 CAN transceiver to an MCU easily. Each example contains a detailed description with the relevant program including comments. All these examples can be downloaded from this page as well. All these examples can be downloaded from this page as well. Following microcontrollers are supported by these examples:
CAN SPI board is ideal for industrial automation, home automation as well as in automotive and mobile machine industry.
Implements ISO-11898 standard physical layer requirements
Supports 1 Mb/s operation
Low current standby operation
Detection of ground fault on TXD input
An unpowered node or brown-out event will not disturb the CAN bus
