Dual CAN Bus Interface For Arduino Due: Controlling the LEDs

The following explains how to control the LEDs on our jCOM.CAN.DUE and jCOM.CAN.DUE-X boards. The experienced Arduino programmer may frown since all necessary information is available (LED1 = GPIO 14; LED2 = GPIO 15). Consequently, this post is for the novice Arduino programmer or those who are primarily interested in embedded Controller Area Network programming. Just as a reminder, [...]

Arduino Due: Dual CAN Port Test Sketch

Let me, first of all, stress the point that the two CAN ports on the Arduino Due are practically useless without their respective CAN transceivers. CAN transceivers convert a regular TTL signal from the CAN controller into a differential voltage, which in turn contributes to the vast reliability of a Controller Area Network. For more [...]
