Cananka allows for the computer control of a CAN bus. The control of device is possible via serial port (SLCAN compatible, Windows/Linux) or via SocketCAN network driver (Linux). More information about the SLCAN protocol is available in a separate document.
- USB serial device supporting SLCAN interface
- Supports 1 Mbps CAN bus operation
- Fully isolated (1 kV)
- Does not require CAN bus power supply (onboard DC-to-DC converter)
- 3.81 mm strip headers CAN bus connector
- USB 2.0 interface (type B)
There are alternative versions available too:
|Revision||Functional||HW Supported||FW Supported||Description|
|Dxxxx||Yes||Yes||Yes||Latest revision using MCP2221A UART interface.|
|Cxxxx †||Yes||Yes||Yes||Last revision to use FT232RL UART.|
|Bxxxx||No||No||Probably ‡||Test revision.|
|Axxxx||No||No||Probably ‡||Test revision.|
† Early revision D test boards might carry revision C markings (slight versioning oversight). However, they can be visually distingushed by the difference in UART chip (FT232RL vs MCP2221A) and a lowercase c used on the silkscreen. In firmware they will be correctly recognized as revision D.
‡ As these test revisions are quite close to what revision C became, firmware code generally works just fine. However, if any issues are found, it is unlikely they will be addressed.
