Use of CAN bus with Formula Flowcode

Post by mnewton »

Is it possible to use CAN bus with the Flowcode buggy? ie using PORTD and the EB018 CAN board?

Hello,

Possible = yes.

Might be a bit tricky as the Flowcode CAN component expects to use a SPI hardware which is not on PortD for the Formula Flowcode. In v5 you can bit bang a SPI bus and it is quite easy to switch the CAN component to do this. Also the CAN component is only available in the pro version.

So to sum up it depends on which version of Flowcode your using as to how simple it will be to setup.
