PICAN FD with SAE J2716 SENT for Raspberry Pi
This PiCAN FD board comes with SAE J2716 SENT, Classical CAN, and CAN FD provided by the Microchip MCP2518FD IC.
A dsPIC33 micro-controller provides SAE J2716 SENT. The communication to the Raspberry Pi is per UART on ttyS0 using ASCII text commands. An example SENT GUI app is available written in Python3 and tkinter.
The firmware is updatable using the Microchip UnifiedHost java app, which requires the Raspberry Pi running in GUI mode.
Also included is an easy-to-install SocketCAN driver, and Python programming is supported.
An optional 3A SMPS module can power the PiCAN FD SENT board and Raspberry Pi from 7 VDC to 24 VDC external supply.

With millions of new users and various new models, the Raspberry Pi ecosystem continues to expand, along with further questions about the Pi’s capabilities.
The third edition of this popular cookbook provides more than 200 hands-on recipes that show you how to operate this miniature low-cost computer with embedded Linux; program it with Python; hook it up to sensors, motors, and Arduino boards; and even use it with the internet of things (IoT).
Prolific hacker and author Simon Monk also teaches the fundamental principles to support your use of new technologies with the Raspberry Pi.
This cookbook is ideal for programmers and hobbyists familiar with the Pi through resources such as Getting Started with Raspberry Pi (O’Reilly). Code examples from the book are available on GitHub.
