EMX CAN RXOver issues



I have several CAN devices which sends 100hz messages each, I need to connect 8 of these modules into an EMX board, when I connect 4-5 of them I am able to receive their messages without any error but when I connect all 8 of them I keep getting RXOver error

How can I avoid this error? I tried to increase the size of the RX messages list without any help, please advise.



You need to enable filters for the messages you need.

Sorry about the previous reply, hit that button by mistake

  1. I have only my devices connected, and I want to receive all their messages
  2. I did setup filter using
SetExplicitFilters(new uint[] { 0x101, 0x102, 0x103, 0x104, 0x105, 0x106, 0x107, 0x108 }); 

My complete CAN object code is below:

using System;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware;

namespace CANTest
    public delegate void CANBusDataReceivedREvent(object sender, ref CAN.Message[] msg);

    public class CCANBus
        private uint m_counter = 0;
        private CAN.Message[] m_MsgList;
        private CAN.Message[] m_TXMsg;
        private CAN m_CAN;
        public CANBusDataReceivedREvent DataReceivedEvent = null;

        public CCANBus(CAN.Channel Channel, int BRP,int T1,int T2,int MsgCapacity = 100)
            m_MsgList = new CAN.Message[MsgCapacity];
            for (int Index = 0; Index < m_MsgList.Length; Index++)
                m_MsgList[Index] = new CAN.Message();

            m_TXMsg = new CAN.Message[1];
            m_TXMsg[0] = new CAN.Message();

            m_CAN = new CAN(Channel, (uint)(((T2 - 1) << 20) | ((T1 - 1) << 16) | ((BRP - 1) << 0)));
            m_CAN.SetExplicitFilters(new uint[] { 0x101, 0x102, 0x103, 0x104, 0x105, 0x106, 0x107, 0x108 }); 
            m_CAN.ErrorReceivedEvent += new CANErrorReceivedEventHandler(HandleErrorReceivedEvent);
            m_CAN.DataReceivedEvent += new CANDataReceivedEventHandler(HandleDataReceivedEvent);

            if (m_CAN != null)
                m_CAN = null;

        public void SendData(uint ID,byte D0,byte D1,byte D2,byte D3,byte D4,byte D5,byte D6,byte D7)
            m_TXMsg[0].ArbID = ID;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[0] = D0;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[1] = D1;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[2] = D2;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[3] = D3;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[4] = D4;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[5] = D5;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[6] = D6;
            m_TXMsg[0].Data[7] = D7;
            m_TXMsg[0].IsEID = false;
            m_TXMsg[0].IsRTR = false;
            m_TXMsg[0].DLC = 8;
            m_TXMsg[0].TimeStamp = DateTime.Now;
            bool SentOk = (m_CAN.PostMessages(m_TXMsg, 0, 1) == 1);

        private void HandleDataReceivedEvent(CAN sender, CANDataReceivedEventArgs args)
            int NumberOfMsgs = sender.GetMessages(m_MsgList, 0, sender.ReceivedMessagesCount);
            m_counter += (uint)NumberOfMsgs;
            if (DataReceivedEvent != null)
                DataReceivedEvent(this, ref m_MsgList);

        private void HandleErrorReceivedEvent(CAN sender, CANErrorReceivedEventArgs args)
            //Debug.Print(">>> Error <<<");

            switch (args.Error)
                case CAN.Error.Overrun:
                    //Debug.Print("Overrun error. Message lost");

                case CAN.Error.RXOver:
                    //Debug.Print("RXOver error. Internal buffer is full. Message lost");

                case CAN.Error.BusOff:
                    //Debug.Print("BusOff error. Reset CAN controller.");


@ Gus - can you please take a look at the code, it includes the setup of filters like you suggested but still no help, I still get the error events
