MCP2515 CAN Bus Monitor Demo Board Kit Forms A Simple Two-Node CAN Bus Network

Posted by Industry News on

Microchip MCP2515 CAN Bus Monitor Demo Board

The MCP2515 is a low pin count stand-alone CAN Bus controller which interfaces to a microcontroller via a standard Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). 

The MCP2515 is a second-generation stand-alone CAN Bus controller. It is pin and function compatible with the MCP2510 and also includes upgraded features like faster throughput, data byte filtering, and support for time-triggered protocols.

The feature set of the MCP2510 makes it very versatile. It would be virtually impossible to document every way the MCP2510 can be configured and used. Therefore, the use of a demo board in combination with a thorough application note provides help, examples, and discussions on some typical configurations.

The MCP2515 CAN Bus Monitor Demo Board kit includes two identical boards which can be connected to form a simple two-node Controller Area Network (CAN) bus, which can be controlled and monitored via the included PC interface. The board can also connect to an existing CAN Bus.

Using the PC interface, users can configure the MCP2515 registers, send CAN Bus messages, and receive CAN Bus data frames. CAN Bus traffic can be produced utilizing a button on the board not connected to the PC.

There are also various headers (test points) for monitoring the MCP2515 pins.

Arduino-Due-Based SAE J1939 Programming Kit 

Arduino-Due-Based SAE J1939 Programming Kit - Standard Edition

Unleash the power of the Arduino Due with ARM Cortex-M3 processor to develop and test your SAE J1939 application, may it be an SAE J1939 to USB protocol converter, an SAE J1939 Bridge, an SAE J1939 data monitor, and many more. The SAE J1939 Programming Kit comes with many programming samples, including a full-blown SAE J1939 protocol stack (ARD1939). 

The included SAE J1939 Simulator Board serves as a transmitter and receiver of SAE J1939 data frames (PGNs). Use the Windows-based jCOM1939 monitoring and simulation software to display, record, or transmit J1939 PGNs, including data request messages. To top things up, the kit includes two books on the SAE J1939 Standard and Arduino Programming for J1939 applications.
