The im1CAN is a CAN Bus module(breakout board), controlled via a SPI bus. It is part our our iMod product range - click here for details. It contains both a CAN Controller and CAN Bus driver chip. It is designed to work with both 3.3V and 5V systems. The popular Microchip MCP2515 CAN Bus controller is used, allowing it to be used with many available software libraries written for this chip.
The MCP2562 CAN Bus driver is used. This chip has a separate supply and I/O voltage. The supply voltage has to be 5V, as required by the CAN Bus protocol. The I/O voltage is selected via the SJ1 solder jumper (see schematic below), and can be either 3.3V or 5V. This enables this module to be used with both 3.3V and 5V systems.
This module is designed and manufactured by Modtronix! Only high quality components from reputable suppliers are used! This is NOT a cheap module using no-name components! See "High Quality Components" section below for component details.
This board is part of our iMod product range, and can very easily be added to any of our products that have iMod ports.

The im1Can has two rows of standard 2.54mm (0.1") pin headers. The rows are 0.7" apart, allowing this module to be mounted on a breadboard or standard 0.1" grid prototype board. The picture to the right shows some iMod modules mounted on a standard prototype board.
The pin headers supplied or soldered to this board are selected in the "Header Type" option at the top of this page.
We provide many prototype boards, shields and other boards with iMod ports. Additionally we provide Eagle PCB files for these boards to all users to easily add iMod ports to their products.
The pt2im and pt4im prototype boards have 2 and 4 iMod ports. They can be used to quickly create custom hardware using a combination of iMod modules and user specific components. Eagle PCB files are also available for free, and can easily be modified for custom applicaitons.
There are many free libraries available for Arduino using the MCP2515 CAN Bus controller.
