#RP2040 + #CAN FD + #VSCP

Got some PCB’s designed by @kentindell Canis Automotive Labs Ltd. promptly manufactured as usual by @JLCPCB today that will be used as prototype boards for some VSCP CAN FD samples using the RP 2040. Eventually, there will probably be a VSCP module around this with my own PCB. Fully open of course.

More info about them here https://github.com/kentindell/canhack

The best gets even better #canbus #vscp

For my VSCP testing I have most of the available CAN adapters available on the market here in the lab. Among them my favorite has been the USB2CAN. It’s attractive price, CANAL/Socketcan support and quality just makes it better than the rest.

Not so anymore.

Gediminas (well his company Rusoku) has released a follow up called TouCAN that at the same attractive price (EUR 69) takes things to another level with the following features

  • No driver installation required (WinUSB Microsoft generic driver, out-of-the-box functionality
  • Zero Frame Loss
  • Timestamp resolution = 1uS
  • Data export to .csv
  • Data Buffer for 20000 Frames
  • Powerful CPU ( Cortex M4 100 MHz )
  • Supported Library. Open Source CANAL API DLL
  • Open Source GUI (Qt.io). Compatible with Linux, MacOS, Windows.
  • Linux SocketCAN support
  • Direct connection to device without CANAL API
  • 2x dual color LEDs
  • Unlimited CAN Device Support
  • Default speeds 10, 20, 50, 100, 125, 250, 500, 1000 or custom CAN bus baud rate.
  • Firmware upgrade via bootloader
  • Meets the requirements of ISO 11898-2
  • Bus-Fault protection of –27 V to 40 V
  • EMI filters for CAN and USB interfaces
  • Linux CANAL API library for SocketCAN
  • TouCAN USB to CAN adapter is compatible with home automation system  VSCP vscpWorks from www.vscp.org

This adapter in the Marin package will definitely be my favorite choice for my own setups in the future. More info is here .
