SK Pang has introduced a CAN FD demo board. It is based on Microchip’s MCP2517 stand-alone CAN FD controller.
The demo board features a Teensy 3.6 plug-in module by Sparkfun. The CAN FD port is realized with Microchip’s MCP2517 stand-alone CAN FD controller and the MCP2562FD transceiver. The stand-alone controller provides 31 Fifos configurable as transmit or receive buffers. The chip communicates via the 20-MHz SPI with a host controller.
The demo board comes with an on-board voltage regulator (6-V to 24-V input). It is equipped with a 120-Ohm termination resistor and a 5-way navigation switch. The supplier provides also demo software and a CAN FD traffic generator.
