Raspberry Pi with the MCP2515 Board from Microchip

Wed Mar 19, 2014 11:52 am

Hi Guys,
at first my English isn't pretty well...
What i want to do is that i connect my PC with one of this Boards ... umentation. After this i connect this board with an other one and after this with my Pi.

I already have a new compiled Kernel ( i did it like this way
Right now i have the new Kernel on my Raspi and it works pretty well.
Now i want to send some CAN-Bus-Messages via the PC (there's a tool fór Windows-based systems available at Microchip) to the Raspi and the Raspi should show me the messages on the tft-monitor.
But i don't know what commands i have to use for this on the Pi.
I also dont know if someone can help me for this issue but i'm pretty sure that i have read a little bit about this theme in this Forum.
HW: Im using the Microchipboard MCP2515

I would be very happy if someone can tell me how to go on.

Thanks a lot

Hi Patrick,

you should look at that post , there is a lot of information there ... =44&t=7027

I made a small project with canbus and the Rapsberry Pi using a PIC cpu.

Maybe you will find what you want in the post or the github I made of it.

Since we don't know if you want to use the canbus for automotive or other stuff. ... 38#p444938
