Hi,

I have an automotive robot project to do and I want to implement CAN networking. I need a uC with all the circuitry on it. Atmel and Microchip seems to be very popular but I don't know wich one to chose. I need an advice.

Thank

Mendoza

Hi,

I am using PIC but I have found that Atmel seems also nice (more rxbuffers, mask, etc). You should also select one depending on your development tools.

Look if you are using a compiler for Atmel that can work also with these Can parts.
If you have avaliable emulator or you are planing to buy one.
The good thing about PICs it is that you can buy the ICD2 debugger and it is not expensive at all.

To sum up, don't look jut to the Microcontrollers to choose one look also to the development enviroment&compiler.

Best regards,

mimoto

I worked with pics and mcp2510 in conjuntion with PCA82c250 driver.
It work fine. You have some specific uC pic with built in CAN controller. Look at www.microchip.com

CAN Interface

Hi all!
I've been working with Fujitsu MD90F543, which has two CAN interfaces, plus PCA82C251 CAN driver. Fujitsu's tools are for free and with very good introductory examples.
You can see one developpment board at
https://www.tbr-electric.com/catalogo_uk.htm
It supports Softune (Fujitsu's development environment) ,as well as Processor Expert (www.processorexpert.com).

Hello,

I have used the PIC18f248, PIC18f448. I am pretty satisfied with them. The best thing of Microchip, I think, is that you can buy a low cost debugger (ICD2) that it is very useful for software development. Microchip also is introducing new PICs with CAN and with more capabilities.

Best regards,

mimoto
