The CANSPI is an easy to use, compact accessory board that allows user to connect a CAN (Controller Area Network) bus to any microcontroller with Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). The board employs both an MCP2515 CAN controller and an MCP2551 CAN transceiver. The MCP2515 circuit used as a CAN controller allows for data exchange with microcontrollers using a standard SPI communication interface. On the other hand, the transceiver MCP2551 chip provides necessary signal adjustments and allows the signals to be sent/received at a 1 Mb/s. The CANSPI board allows for transmitting and receiving both standard and extended data and remote frames.

It makes an ideal option for users looking to connect CAN to a microcontroller without integrated CAN support. Applications like, industrial automation, home automation as well as automotive and mobile machine industry are well-suited for CAN-SPI board.

  • Based on the MCP2515 - mplements ISO-11898 standard physical layer requirements
  • Supports 1 Mb/s operation
  • Low-current standby operation
  • Protection against damage due to short-circuit conditions
  • Supported by all MikroE compilers
  • An unpowered node or brown-out event will not disturb the CAN bus
  • Up to 112 nodes can be connected
  • Uses a 5V power supply only
  • Protection against damage due to short-circuit conditions
  • Easy connection with peripheral modules using female IDC10 connector
  • Highly economical
  • RoHS compliant

Product Details

IC/Module: MCP2515 Stand-Alone CAN Controller

MCP2515 is a stand-alone Controller Area Network (CAN) controller that is capable of transmitting and receiving both standard and extended data and remote frames. It communicates with MCUs using the industry standard SPI interfaces. The CAN controller comes with two acceptance masks and six acceptance filters to filter out unwanted messages. Hence, it also minimizes the host microcontroller's overhead.

IC/Module: MCP2551 CAN Transceiver

MCP2551 is a high-speed, fault-tolerant CAN transceiver that serves as an interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical bus. Fully compatible with the ISO-11898 standard, it functions at 1 Mb/s speed and provides differential transmit and receive capability for the CAN controller.
