Introduction to CAN

Question asked by Ian Benton on Sep 28, 2017
Latest reply on Oct 6, 2017 by Ian Benton

I have to send some data across a piece of equipment that is electrically noisy (some 160 Amp pulse currents going on) and have three options. The first two I can handle (Good old RS485, or fibreoptic), and the third is CAN which I've not done before. My expertise extends as far as having read the Wikipedia page (so I know about the hardware and the message format). 

I have LPC1517s at both ends; and although the LPC1517 manual is comprehensive in telling me what all the CAN registers do, I'm looking for a bit more of a "cookbook" tutorial on how to initialise the CAN hardware and how to send a message on the LPC1517. Could you please suggest what I should read.
