hi,

Working with iMx6-solo is it possible to use LIN Bus interface.?

Is it possible to use the LIN bus interface through the CAN interface available in the processor? or any other possibilities ?

Thanks.

Regards,

Pankaj Rana

if you use canutils u need roll back to fit sllin

if use slcan_attach and modify it to sllin_attach

Terminal one
root@matrix_io:/ # sllin_attach -w /dev/ttymxc2                            
[ 1011.794896] sllin: sllin_open() invoked
[ 1011.795496] sllin: Configured as MASTER
[ 1011.796026] sllin: Baudrate set to 19200
attached tty /dev/ttymxc2 to netdevice sllin0
Press any key to detach /dev/ttymxc2 ...
//now do not press anykey

Terminal Two:

adb shell

su

find . -print | grep -i 'sllin0'

./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0
./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0/mtu
./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0/type
./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0/phys_port_name
./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0/netdev_group
./sys/devices/virtual/net/sllin0/flags

//success too

Sllin is TTY discipline enabling you to create LIN Master (and partially LIN Slave) out of your computer.
Hardware needed is Hardware UART embedded into the computer + simple voltage level LIN converter.

You can use UART controller for LIN communication. The LIN protocol is UART base protocol.

See the following pages

(http://rtime.felk.cvut.cz/can/sllin-rtlws14-paper.pdf)

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for your reply.

Using the UART interface of iMX6-SOLO for LIN ?

LIN BUS supports 16 slaves , but whereas UART interacts with one device only. So won't this affect the working ? Also the slave addresses will come into account .

I came across some of the RS232-LIN convertors but in the implementation circuit they have used MCUs that support LIN protocol. In iMX6 processors I have not seen any provision for LIN , so I am little worried on it.!

LIN transceiver supports using a few slaves on the LIN bus.

You software should supports 16 slaves. Your software should support LIN Frames. LIN frames provides support 16 slaves. See LIN specification.
