Here's the latest versions of my board.  I would love to make these SMD at some time but I'm a newbie at this stuff so it will have to wait.  Also these boards are to fulfill a specific need, which is strictly CAN only at the moment.

I now have two boards.  A single and a double.  The single is shrunk down in size a little and has protection for taking power from the bus.  It still has a switchable CS pin.

The double allows you to split a CAN bus.  It has two separate CAN circuits, CAN 1 uses D10 and CAN 2 uses D9 as CS.  You can use either of the CAN circuits individually, or together either with separate cables or a single cable plugged in to CAN 1. (Providing it's correctly configured of course!)

That looks very nice. Are you going to be selling them?

Thanks!  I haven't decided on whether to sell them or not.  There are a few CAN implementations on the market already.  Not sure if I could be profitable selling these.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was checkin on, was to see if you were doing this for a better price than the current market options. :)
