PRODUCT DETAILS

Note

2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD) board is the latest version.

Versions Declare

There are 3 versions of the CAN-BUS shield for Raspberry Pi. All 3 versions work perfectly on Raspberry Pi platform and may skip this section if you're using RPi platform.

The CAN-BUS shield now also supports the NVIDIA Jetson Nano platform, and different versions of the CAN-BUS Shield do affect the functionality, please check the table below carefully if you're using with Jetson Nano Platform.

As you can see, there are two versions of chips used in the 2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for RPi (MCP2517FD) and both channels work on RPi but only single channel (CAN0) works on the Jetson Nano Platform!

This shield is a 2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD). It supports the CAN FD protocol and supports transmission speed up to 8 Mbps.
 
We have released many CAN BUS modules, shields, and hats , but the 2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD) is unique: it supports CAN FDCAN FD (CAN with Flexible Data-Rate) protocol is an upgraded version of the traditional CAN BUS that increases the CAN’s transmission rate from 1Mbps to 8Mbps. At the same time, CAN FD improves real-time performance and extends user data frames, providing higher efficiency.
 
The 2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD) is based on MCP2518 CAN FD Controller and MCP2557 CAN FD Transceiver which communicates with Raspberry Pi via the high-speed SPI interface. 

Note

MCP2518FD chip has the characteristics of MCP2517FD, both are compatible.

 You can power this shield via your Raspberry Pi’s 40 pin header, or you can use the 12 - 24V DC screw terminal to supply the power for the whole system.  To ensure the stability of communication, we’ve used high-quality Panasonic capacitors and TI power chips, along with quality circuit design, to build a stable power management system, which provides stable 3.3V and 5V power supply for all parts of the system.

 
As you may know, the devices at both ends of the CAN BUS need a 120Ω terminating resistor to avoid reflection. With the help of an onboard 120Ω resistor to enable switch, you can easily toggle the onboard resistor on and offAdditionally, we provide two Grove I2C connectors in case you need to work with more Grove modules.

Attention

To work with this hat, please uses the new Raspbian image (Release date:2019-09-26 or later), otherwise it may not work.

Mounting Guide

Attention

You can see that we used nylon columns during assembly to avoid short-circuiting between the metal terminals under the CAN BUS port and the HDMI interface on the Raspberry Pi. So please be sure to assemble the nylon column as shown.

Note

Please note that this shield does not contain a Raspberry Pi, if you need one, please check here.
