Particle Electron CAN bus

Hi, I read through the Particle Electron specs and it mentioned the CAN bus is already built in.

“UART, JTAG, I2C, SPI, ADC, DAC, CAN and USB hardware peripherals”

Is it true? Do we need any add-on shield board or it’s already built in? Any one successfully tested it?

Hi Jason.

CAN Bus is well supported and here is a link to the reference docs:

Although you will certainly need some hardware to translate the CAN Bus voltage levels (same for Photon / Electron).

Here are some hardware options that seem popular enough:

I’m interested to hear how you get on with this project!
