NEW GUIDE: CAN Bus with #CircuitPython #AdafruitLearningSystem #CANbus @Adafruit @JeffEpler
Does your project call for a local network connecting multiple microcontrollers? Maybe what you need is the CAN Bus.
Take a look at this new Adafruit Learning System guide from Jeff Epler:
In this guide you’ll learn how to use the CircuitPython canio module to send and receive data between two supported boards, such as the Feather M4 CAN.
The canio module can also be used with the ESP32-S2 and Feather STM32F405 when you add an external CAN transceiver chip. Check the guide out now!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
