Using two CAN connections on 30F6012A

This has maybe been asked before, but is it possible to use both CANBUS modules on a 30F6012A chip? I can successfully use 1 but if I add another CAN component to Flowcode i can't compile to HEX. Is it possible to map each CAN component to a specific CAN module on the chip?

Thanks

Re: Custom Characters For 7Segment Displays

Hello
for what version of Flowcode was this created? I've tried it in version 5 but it doesn't compile, generating several errors. I will look at the code and see id I can do a version 5 or version 6 compatible component.

Re: Recent FC v5 Crossgrade

Hello
I have both FC 5 PIC Pro and FC 5 dsPiC Pro and would like to upgrade to FC6 but when I try to enter the key for my old FC5 it is not recognized. How do I do to get an upgrade? And what will the price be?

Or you could use this display or a different colour of it.

Almost the same dimensions, cheaper and it works directly with Flowcode. I have tested it.

Re: dsPIC 5.5 Internal CAN problem

Hello,
sorry for the late reply but I've been away from home for a week so I had no possibility to test anything.

You are right.... by setting a CAN speed 4 times higher i.e. 500 kbps I get a true 125 kbps signal.
I wounder if this is only the 30F60XX chips or if it is all dsPIC?

dsPIC gLCD speed change

Hello
I have been working with the dsPIC Version 5, a 30f6012A PIC and the EB076.
In the init code there is a change of communication speed to 57600 but that doesn't seam to be happening. My logic analyzer tells me that communication is 9600 all the time. Any ideas?
