can to uart

Does anybody know a controller that will convert CAN signals to UART and feed it to a PIC micro controller? I can go fro a PIC micro controller with CAN but I cannot change the PIC micro controller. So I am intending to place an add on board containing a controller that will convert incoming CAN signals to UART.

uart to can

Why not use a Microchip MCP2515 stand alone CAN controller with an SPI interface?
Most pics have SPI.

uart can

You may have to look at using some microcontroller for converting CAN to UART.

SPI port is already occupied and UART is the only interface available

uart-can

I don't think it is available. Even then supporting CAN FULL speed on UART is a question. There are many SPI based CAN controllers.
