Hi everyone,

I am new-bee to the ARM platform.

I am using Android 4.0 running in i.MX6Q for my project.

I want to use CAN to communicate with other devices (CAN-Microcontrollers). I have downloaded the linux drivers for I.MX6Q (i.MX 6 Series Software and Development Tool Resources Product Summary Page</title><meta name="Title" …) with the Freescale technical support guidance.


In the FlexCAN driver section in the documentation section of "SABRE for Automotive Infotainment", the pdf "Linux_6DQ_RM_L3.0.35_1.1.0.pdf" has mentioned about "flexcan.c", which is I can not find.

But there is a folder called, "cantest-1.0" and inside there, there are can drivers (which is called SocketCAN).

Could anyone please tell me that, can I use these drivers?


I am using Eclips IDE to build my Android application. But I do not know how to use these drivers in my application.


Could anyone please guide me.
