Arduino-Due-Based ECU Development Board With Two CAN Bus Ports
Sorry, but this product is discontinued.
We now offer a variety of Arduino-compatible Teensy devices that support the same functionality, and more. Teensy is a line of hardware boards designed to offer maximum I/O capabilities, backed up by a slew of fully featured software libraries designed to run on Arduino.
The jCOM.DUE.CORE-B board combines two of our products into one:
- Dual CAN Bus Interface for Arduino Due...
- Due Core - Arduino Compatible SAM3X8E 32bit ARM Cortex M3 Module...
- 72 x 113 mm (add 10 mm for CAN Bus and power supply connectors)
- 2.8" x 4.5" (add 0.4" for CAN Bus and power supply connectors)
The board was designed to fit into the Pactec LH45-100 Kit enclosure.
The CAN Bus board incorporates dual CAN transceivers required by the two integrated CAN ports on the Arduino Due, i.e. they convert the CAN TTL signal into a differential voltage as required by the CAN Bus Standard (ISO 11898).
The board is fully compatible with the open-source Arduino Software (IDE), making it easy to write C code and upload it to the board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
The Due Core is a compact version of the Arduino DUE. It integrates all peripherals required for the MCU, and all GPIO are connected to 2.54mm connectors. As a standard MCU core, the board has the following features:
- Compact size: All components are put on a 54 x 58mm 4-Layers PCB. All IOs are connected to a 116-pin 2.54 standard connector.
- Easy to use: All IOs are connected to 116pin 2.54 standard connector. It requires only a 5 VDC power supply to make it work.
- Stable design: High-quality 4-layer PCB layout, two 5V to 3.3V LDO onboard, one for digital and one for analog processing. Separate AVCC and AGND, to ensure optimum analog performance.
- Easy to set up the development environment: Uploading sketches through standard 6-pin UART interface, standard Micro usb connector, full use of existing resources.
- User-friendly design: Rich LED status indication, two onboard buttons, one is for MCU reset, and one is for Flash Erase. Unique jumper erase protection against the flash erased by mistake.
- Rich resources: All IOs are available for the user. The onboard I2C EEPROM is designed to compensate for the shortcomings of the standard SAM3X8E, which has no built-in EEPROM.
The jCOM.DUE.CORE-B board is powered either by the USB port connection (either the programming or native USB) or through an external power supply supporting an input voltage of 7 to 36 VDC.
Please be aware that the Arduino Due Core board is specified for an operational temperature range of 0 to 50C - 32 to 122F.

If you experience any problems with running our program samples, please check the following:
- Make sure, your Arduino IDE supports the Due - See: Arduino Due IDE Setup
- Make sure, you have the newest version of the Arduino IDE installed
Uploading a Sketch:
Connect the included USB cable to your PC, then connect the 6-pin side of the USB cable to the Arduino board as shown in the image to the left. Initiate the programming procedure as follows:
- Press the Reset button and hold it.
- Press the Erase button and hold it.
- Release the Reset button.
- Release the Erase button.
In the Arduino IDE make sure you select the COM port, usually Port 3 (otherwise check with Device Manager), and download the sketch.

Programming Arduino - Getting Started With Sketches
by Simon Monk
Clear, easy-to-follow examples show you how to program Arduino with ease! "Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches" helps you understand the software side of Arduino and explains how to write well-crafted Sketches (the name given to Arduino programs) using the C language of Arduino. This practical guide offers an unintimidating, concise approach for non-programmers that will get you up and running right away.
Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches explains basic concepts and syntax of C with simple language and clear examples designed for absolute beginners - no prior knowledge of programming is required. It leads you from basic through to advanced C programming concepts and features dozens of specific examples that illustrate concepts and can be used as-is or modified to suit your purposes.
- All code from the book is available for download.
- Helps you develop working Sketches quickly.
