2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD)
This shield is a 2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD), supports the CAN FD protocol and supports transmission speed up to 8 Mbps.
- 50+: $27.50
2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD) board is the latest version.
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.
|Product Name||Chip||RPi State||Jetson Nano State|
|2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for RPi (MCP2517FD)||MCP2517FD||Two channels||Single Channel(can0)|
|2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for RPi (MCP2517FD)||MCP2518FD||Two channels||Single Channel(can0)|
|2-Channel CAN-BUS(FD) Shield for Raspberry Pi (MCP2518FD)||MCP2518FD||Two channels||Two Channels|
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!
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.
To work with this hat, please uses the new Raspbian image (Release date:2019-09-26 or later), otherwise it may not work.

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