The PiCAN FD Zero HAT provides CAN Bus FD capability for the Raspberry Pi Zero. The Raspberry Pi Pico is a tiny, fast, and adaptable board built using the RP2040, a dual-core Arm Cortex-M0+ processor with 264KB internal RAM and support for up to 16MB of off-chip Flash.

The PiCAN FD Zero HAT uses the Microchip MCP2518FD CAN controller with MCP2562FD CAN transceiver. Connection is made via a 4way plug-in terminal block. CAN_H, CAN_L signals, and +12 VDC supply for the board and the Pi Zero. Onboard is a 1A SMPS that supplies power to the PiCAN FD and Pi Zero board.

The improved CAN FD extends the length of the CAN Bus message frame to up to 64 bytes per frame and a data rate of up to 8 Mbps.

Pi Zero, sensor board, and cable are not included.

The Raspberry Pi Cookbook - Software and Hardware Problems and SolutionsRaspberry Pi Cookbook: Software and Hardware Problems and Solutions


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.
