Hey, community! We launched the Seeed Studio XIAO ESP32C3 on July 7th, 2022. A new family member of Seeed Studio XIAO series, with the rich onboard interface, thumb-sized design, and most importantly, at only a cost of $4.99. The first batch sold out in a few hours.
Product cooking time.
Notice that the XIAO ESP32 supports a two-wire automotive interface (TWAI), which is compatible with ISO11898-1 classical frames (CAN 2.0).
For CAN 2.0: XIAO ESP32C3 supports TWAI controller, so you only need one additional TWAI transceiver.
For CAN FD: If you want to use CAN FD, you need an outside CAN FD controller as well as a CAN FD transceiver.
This is great for automotive, multiplexing for use within road vehicles and other control applications. So, we are planning to combine XIAO ESP32C3 and CAN BUS, aiming at a cost-effective and compact prototyping kit or device. It could be as a tiny CAN analyzer, a CAN-to-MQTT data logger or we could add additional onboard sensors, etc. Do you think it is a good idea to meet your demand? We will listen carefully and take action to respond to your passion.
During the past few months, Seeed builds the Wio-E5 CAN Development Kit together with the community. Based on valuable suggestions from our community, we moved a few more steps towards production with updates to the design. Finally, we launched the Wio-E5 CAN Development Kit on June 2nd.
Now and again, we need to get your valuable input and feedback before we finalize the product design.
- Dose CAN+XIAO ESP32C3 a good choice for you?
- What functions do you want us to add to ESP32C3+ CAN to meet your scenarios, like onboard TWAI transceiver, CAN FD controller+transciver, OBD-Ⅱ, Long Range, GPS, RS232, RS485, AI camera, some Grove connectors, or anything?
