CANBUS for NUC

Hi,

does anyone know a way of easily integrating CANBUS communication with a NUC?

Thanks,

Andrew

Can't you just use one of the USB-to-CAN adapters? Like this: https://www.kanda.com/products/Lawicel/CANUSB.html CANUSB - USB CAN bus interface for CAN bus to USB PC Connection

Thanks Scott,

I'm looking for some way to incorporate the CAN card directly onto the NUC rather than a USB or serial type adaptor.

Well, speculatively, there are a number of possibilities that come to mind:

  1. There are serial and i2c outputs on the Customer Solutions Headers on many of the NUCs and you could interface to a separate CAN card using them.
  2. I have seen some PCIe-based CAN cards. It is possible that a version of one of these could be developed that plugs into the NUC's M.2 mPCIe connector.
  3. You could still implement using USB; connecting to one of the internal USB 2.0 headers.
