CAN Bus Prototyping With Arduino Uno - The MCP2515 Library

This post is part of a series about Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Prototyping With the Arduino Uno.As with any serial networking controller, the essential functions are: InitializationRead DataWrite DataCheck StatusIn case of the MCP2515 library, these functions are represented by: Initialization: CAN0.beginRead Data: CAN0.readMsgBuf incl. CAN0.checkReceive, CAN0.getCanIdWrite Data: CAN0.sendMsgBufCheck Status: CAN0.checkErrorFunction CallsFunction:           CAN0.beginPurpose: Initializes the CAN controller and [...]

CAN Bus Prototyping With Arduino Uno - Arduino CAN Sketches

This post is part of a series about Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Prototyping With the Arduino Uno.The implementation of either one of the introduced CAN Bus Shields and the corresponding CAN Bus sketches went surprisingly smooth when paired with the right library software. I found several source codes for accessing the MCP2515 CAN controller, but most of [...]

CAN Bus Prototyping With Arduino Uno - Arduino CAN Shields

This post is part of a series about Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Prototyping With the Arduino Uno. Since Controller Area Network (CAN) is predominantly targeted at industrial solutions (versus the vastly more popular USB for non-industrial use such as home and lab), there aren’t too many choices available in the market. Through some research (i.e. browsing) I found two very similar [...]

CAN Bus Prototyping With Arduino Uno - Prototyping Hardware

This post is part of a series about Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Prototyping With the Arduino Uno. As I had mentioned earlier, it is assumed that you have some basic knowledge of the Arduino, Arduino Sketches, and Arduino Shields. I will nevertheless take the opportunity of mentioning the prototyping hardware and its variants. It is important to know that the [...]

CAN Bus Repeater With Four ISO 11898 Ports

The compact CAN Bus Repeater CRep S4 by EMS Wuensche (Germany) transmits and amplifies signals transparent to the CAN Bus protocol. Each of the four CAN Bus connections has the physical behavior of a single bus node. The repeater module permits a flexible design of the network topology but offers special support for star-structured networks. In addition, tree structures and [...]
