PiCAN2 CAN Bus HAT for Raspberry Pi - Getting Access To The 40-pin GPIO Header

In the past, we had received a number of inquiries regarding the PiCAN2's 40-pin GPIO header, which is designed in a way that it prohibits access to unused GPIOs. Besides the power supply, the PiCAN2 board (one CAN port) itself uses only 6 signals, while the remaining signals cannot be accessed when the board is [...]

SAE J1939 Programming with Arduino – End of Message Acknowledgment Timeout

This post is part of a series about SAE J1939 ECU Programming & Vehicle Bus Simulation with Arduino. In order to test all timeouts during an RTS/CTS session, I used a dedicated Arduino sketch to simulate all the “nasty” features that would trigger a communication breakdown. This method was easier to implement rather than using a full SAE J1939 stack. [...]

SAE J1939 Programming with Arduino – Clear to Send Timeout

This post is part of a series about SAE J1939 ECU Programming & Vehicle Bus Simulation with Arduino. The simplest test for a Clear to Send timeout is accomplished by running the Mega 2560 ECU as the only node in the network.To test this scenario, I run the Mega 2560 at an address of 0x80 (128) and attempt to initiate [...]
