IPC@CHIP® RTOS-PPC – API Documentation
This section describes the API for the @CHIP-RTOS-PPC's CAN stack. The IPC@CHIP® SC2x3 disposes of a CAN controller, which complies with versions 2.0A/B of the Controller Area Network (CAN) specification.
A basic knowledge of the CAN protocol is required in order to successfully use the CAN API. Please refer to the website of the CAN in Automation (CiA) organisation (http://www.can-cia.org) for specifications, etc.
The present CAN API is not downwards compatible to the SC1x3/SC2x CAN API. The SC1x3/SC2x CAN API is tightly coupled with the SC1x3/SC2x CAN controller hardware, which is significantly different from the SC2x3's CAN controller hardware. The new API should be generic enough to apply to future CAN controllers.
