The BUS2S-CAN is a CAN Bus Frontend expansion board. It is design to fit onto the Frontend connector of our MicroX range of boards. When connected to the Frontend port of a compatible MicroX SBC board it will add a CAN Bus interface to it. For a list of compatible SBC boards, see documentation on old site (link given above).
This board is used together with a Modtronix SBC board that is fitted with a CAN enabled PIC chip. Examples of compatible SBC boards with PIC chips are:
- SBC28PC-IR2 fitted with the PIC18F258 chip.
- SBC45EC fitted with PIC18F458 chip
It is supplied with a 5 pin 3.81mm screw type terminal block plug and a CAN Bus driver chip as show in the picture. The CAN Bus signals, ground and optionally (selected via straps) the positive supply are made available on a 5 pin 3.81mm terminal block connector. See the datasheet for details.
A 3mm red LED is connected to the Frontend connector signal B6. When plugged into a SBC board, this signal is routed to PIC port pin RB6. The user application running on the MicroX SBC board can control this LED via port pin RB6..
