Boron / Mesh Have No CAN Bus?


#1

My assumption based on the specs and datasheet is that the processor used for the Mesh products does NOT support a CAN bus directly and never will. Is that the case?

I know that I can always use a CAN -> SPI chip (and I suppose I shall, eventually), but it has been extremely convenient to have on-board.


#2

Correct. The nRF52840 does not support CAN. A CAN to SPI chip is the best solution. The MCP25625 includes the transceivers on the chip, which is kind of handy. I have not tested it yet, however.
