The CAN-1 Board allows you to connect a CAN network to microcontrollers that have CAN support. It has an MCP2551 CAN transceiver on board.
The board has a female IDC10 connector to plug it into a development system. The DIP switch allows you to set which pins are used for RX/TX, and the user manual explains the settings required for specific MikroElektronika development systems.
Note: The board is designed to use 5V power supply only. Be sure to use voltage translators on communication lines when connecting it to 3.3V systems.
CAN Bus Add-on Module Features
- 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
- Up to 112 nodes can be connected
- Protection against damage due to short-circuit conditions
- Ready-to-use examples save development time
- Supported in all mikroElektronika compilers
Compatible Development Systems The CAN-1 Board can be used on any system whose microcontroller has CAN support. The interface is via a female IDC10 connector. Development systems by mikroElektronika have matching 2×5-pin headers already installed. To use it in your own system, you may want to pick up IDC10 box headers that you can solder onto your PCB, or an EasyTEST board to wire it up easily.
