Hi everybody!

I`m quite new to the Arduino world, but not to the uC world. I'd like to collaborate as much as possible with the development of the CAN API for the Arduino DUE. I actually have several DUE and other Arduino boards (with the necessary shields) and USB CAN interfaces, as well as other applications that are extensively using CAN BUS.

I'm very sorry of not having been able to start collaborating with you earlier, but I really would like to help as much as possible in any task you give me.

Cheers!

Except we can't contribute or do anything, it's really fun this way...

zabaat,
What you're saying is partly true, until the new CAN library is published. The Atmel engineer that developed a prior CAN API for the SAM3X8H, is supporting Arduino with this CAN interface for Due. Once the library is on github, everyone should start to test/discuss/contribute. And I say partly because at this very moment people in this forum could be contributing, let's say, with the design of the shield. Electric schematics have been published here. I have also shown a couple of my shield approaches. What I would like to hear in this post is: My pseudo CAN shield is ready. Here a picture of it, but I have yet to see any of them here. Does that really matter? Yes, because otherwise, you can't do any test or discuss or contribute just with the sketch or the classes. Am I right?

Oh, I guess I was waiting the same way, thinking what use is a can shield in my efforts to contribute to the testing when I have  no sketch or classes. Since it's now clear that is what I need to do to get access. I will build the shield as you have listed and post it's picture. I have had 20 of the chips and 4 Dues for a couple weeks now, definitely would have built this had I known.

I already posses a good understanding of the protocol, USB-CAN adapters and debugging software tools to tackle this. I even have a project that needs it.

I would suggest making a closed project at least for people that understand it is in beta stage so you can control the feedback you get.

I'm in the same position as Zabaat.

I'll build the Pseude shield ASAP and post pics. Maybe I try out another HW solution from the IC I have right here. I would also like to be collaborating with a beta release and feedback you directly.

Cheers

Lufe - I'm working to build a better "industrial protocol" arduino board, integrating modbus / rs232 (12v) and CAN and 2x Due chips. I just saw Palliser's ethernet addin and am debating adding that in by exposing those pins off of the dues for future expansion for profinet if possible. Is this something you would be interest in collaborating in?
