Linux CAN on Vybrid VF50

The following changes did the real trick for setting up the CAN1 peripheral on Colibri VF50 module.

The other problem was with the bus interface. The solution was to use identical CAN trans-receivers for both sides of communication. Kindly excuse my lack of electrical engineering knowledge, but after using identical trans-receivers for both my CAN nodes, it was successfully working.

PS: The CAN Modules I used are SN65HVD230 from Waveshare.

Hi Sohal

Perfect, that it is working. Thanks for your feedback.

Will you be taking up the changes required in the Toradex Page?
