Enabling internal CAN interface on Colibri iMX6

Hello Support,

I’d like to access and use the Colibri iMX6 module’s internal CAN controller. I’ve an external transceiver which could be used to process the signals coming from the module (coming from SODIMM pin 63/55, exposed on Aster’s X18.1 UNO_GPIO7 and X17.8 UNO_GPIO6), but the installed linux (Linux colibri-imx6 4.1.44-2.7.4+gb1555bf #1 SMP Wed Oct 4 22:20:42 UTC 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux) doesn’t recognise the can* interface and controller.

What would be the proper setup to access and use the Colibri’s internal can interface?

hi akabai

The Bsp 2.7 is not supported any more. Please update to the Bsp 2.8b5 as your earliest convenience.
Concerning Can, did you already have a look here?

Best regards, Jaski

hi @jaski.tx ,

as I see, 2.7 is still the latest stable branch, why is it not supported anymore and why should I switch to beta instead?

anyways, thanks for the link!

Yeah, sorry you are right. It was just that in near future we will have 2.8 Release and in meantime you could already try the new Bsp. By the way, did you checkout the Can Article stated in my previous answer?

Yes, I already checked the details. Currently I’m trying to solve it in a different way (SPI based controller) and I’ll be back to this after that.

Ok, Thanks for you Input.
