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
