CAN Support,

Postby QMESAR » Tue Apr 03, 2018 3:11 pm

Hello Team.
Is there any news regarding the CAN internal module support and USB ,
When should we be expecting support in FC8 or 9 :D :D
Looking forward to hear some sort of projection, I know we were promised USB support soon just after the initial release of PIC32 support :D

Hello Peter,

USB should be in for PIC32 in 7.3.

It's not as neat as the 8-bit and 16-bit devices but it should work if you follow the instructions.

I'll get CAN on the list to investigate for v8.

Hi Team, in relation to the question of QMesar about the CAN Controllers for flowcode V8 or V9. There are different CAN controllers on the market that would want to simulate and program using flowcode as described below:

ATA6563
MCP2517FD
ADM3053
STN1110 Multiprotocol OBD
ATA6570

How is this development going and how easy it is to integrate these controllers with in V8, facing this different configurations and setups.

Thank you much

Rod

Hi

Why doesn't FC just allow us to use the internal CAN interface on a given uC sort out an interrupt for received addresses which have been setup up and have done with it? The actual physical connection can be utilised with interface chips.

Going out and trying to find CAN chips then write specific code for them seems daft.

It does. For certain uCs. I think there are simply too many different controllers with CAN for Flowcode to support them all.

Hi Kersing,

Um are you sure??? I'm looking through my FC7 and I can't see any 'yellow crosses' against any of my CAN components but the only options I can see is for a MCP2515 component which is a SPI to CAN chip.

Or have the last three hairs I have left just turned blonde LOL?

Yes, l’m sure. I’ve used the component. I guess you are only looking at 8 bit devices? Some dspic33 devices are supported.

Hi Docara, i wanted to say transceiver, instead of Controller, my mistake. And you re right about the limitation of resources for different mcu while using its internal CAN interface.
