CAN-BUS is a common protocol and widely used in industry due to its long travel distance, medium communication speed, and high reliability. Now you can realize a CAN-BUS project through this tinny little development board. Different from CAN-BUS shield series that we have released, CANBed - Arduino CAN Bus Development Kit embed an Atmega32U4 chip, which means you don’t need to add other jump wires to another Arduino Board, it is an Arduino board itself!
Because of the Atmega32U4 onboard chip, this board has rich resources in pins. As a matter of fact, there are 18 pins based on core chip set up on the board, which include digital pins, analog pins, UART, and I2C interface. Besides, this CANBed adopts MCP2515 CAN Bus controller with SPI interface and MCP2551 to achieve the CAN-Bus capability. There are also two kinds of CAN Bus interface for various demands which are sub-D9 connector and terminal block interface. They would fit all your need in the connecting method.
This CAN-Bus development board is perfectly compatible with Arduino IDE. With the help of the Arduino CAN-Bus library, you will save plenty of time for your CAN project.
