Gadgeteer CAN DW Module
The Gadgeteer CAN DW Module
The Gadgeteer CAN DW Module allows to connect Gadgeteer circuits using the CAN bus (Controller area network).
CAN is a multi-master broadcast serial bus standard for connecting electronic control units. The pinout on the CAN bus is normalized and uses a standard DB-9 connector. It is this type of connector that is found on the CAN DW Gadgeteer module.
The CAN bus can be used to connect Gadgeteer circuits. The CAN bus can operate in a decentralized mode with minimal features. The automotive sector is the source of the CAN data bus, which avoids a point to point wiring solution that is too complex to implement and maintain.
This CAN module exposes the CAN TX and CAN RX digital lines that can be a High Speed Dual Wire, Single Wire or even Low Speed Fault Tolerant.
