CAN bus communications


#1

Good morning all,
I am looking to use the Domino on CAN bus and was wondering if there was a particular 2-wire CAN transceiver in mind to complete the system.

I was also wondering if there are any firm(ish) estimates on when the new release of the firmware will be? And will this include the non-obsolete CAN classes?

Thanks in advance.


#2

The CAN class driver is fine but it is set to obsolete because we want to be free to replace it with new one anytime we like (without hearing complains :slight_smile: )

The new driver may not be available for months.

About the transceiver, you can use any device that fits your application.


#3

I m investigatting on using the domino card to communicate with an ESX-IOX (by STW) card. Do the Domino Card support the CANopen protocol?


#4

It supports CAN not CANopen but CANopen is a software layer that you can write in C#


#5

So do you think that we could use our FEZ Domino as a CAN-USB adpter. The purpose is to be able to load a program inside our ESX-IOX card which is only possible through CAN.


#6

USBizi (FEZ Domino) has been used commercially to do exactly what you are asking for.


#7

do you have source code sample of this?


#8

There are tons of code samples on www.fezzer.com

Ask more specific questions for more detailed answer please. You need code example for what? CAN? USB?

I suggest you start getting familiar with FEZ then you will see how all come in really easy
