PICAN2 - Raspberry Pi CAN Bus HAT Supports SocketCAN and Python Programming

Posted by Industry News on

PiCAN 2 - CAN Bus Interface for Raspberry Pi

The PICAN2 board provides Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus capabilities for the Raspberry Pi. It uses the Microchip MCP2515 CAN controller with MCP2551 CAN transceiver. 

The CAN Bus connection is via DB9 or 3-way screw terminal. 

The board is also available with a 5 VDC 1 Amp SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply) that can power the Raspberry Pi via the screw terminals or DSUB9 connector.

There is an easy-to-install SocketCAN driver, and programming can be accomplished in C or Python.

Extended versions of the PICAN2 board include:

PiCAN CAN Bus FD Board With Real-Time Clock For Raspberry Pi

The PiCAN FD board provides CAN Bus FD (Flexible Data Rate) capability for the Raspberry Pi 3. It uses the Microchip MCP2517FD CAN FD controller with MCP2562FD CAN transceiver. Developed by Bosch, 

CAN with Flexible Data-Rate (CAN FD) is an extension to the original CAN protocol as specified in ISO 11898-1 that responds to increased bandwidth requirements in automotive networks. 

A real-time clock with battery back up (battery not included) is also on the board.

dual CAN FD Bus board is also available.

Raspberry Pi 3 B+ System With Dual Isolated CAN Bus Interface

We also provide a Raspberry Pi 3 System with single or dual CAN Bus Interface based on the PiCAN2.

It comes with a pre-installed Raspbian operating system, including PICAN driver setup.

The available versions are:
