E-Blocks CAN board US$55.44

E-Blocks CAN board

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.

CAN interface board for E-blocks systems with three switches and two LEDs

This E-block is designed to allow a CAN bus communications system to be easily set up using a wide range of microcontroller devices even those without embedded CAN functions.

The board includes both a CAN Controller and a CAN Transceiver, and uses the high-speed SPI bus to configure the CAN controller for transmitting and receiving CAN information. The host microcontroller must therefore have an SPI bus module. The CAN transceiver converts the CAN controller signals into differential signal level used by the CAN bus, and vice versa.

For development and training purposes the board is fitted with three switches and two LEDs which can be controlled using the CAN transceiver chip.

E-blocks CAN Board Key Features

  • Transmit and receive messages via CAN bus
  • Allows processors with no CAN module access to the CAN bus
  • Uses SPI bus for all configuration
  • Access to dedicated input and output lines on the CAN controller
  • 3 test switches and 2 test LEDs
Note that this E-block is for 5V systems only.

E-Blocks Overview

E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.

Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
