Can controller and can transceiver

Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:07 am

Hi,

I am a newbie and I am interested to buy a board to add to my raspberry I have seen in http://skpang.co.uk/ two board to connect to the CAN-BUS, the only difference is that one has the MCP2515 chip (controller) + MCP2551 chip (transceiver) while the other only has the MCP2515 chip (controller). My (stupid/easy) question is, am I able to have a can-bus communication only with the MCP2515 chip??

The boards are these ones:

http://skpang.co.uk/catalog/pican2-canb ... -1476.html

Many thanks in advanced.

Both of those boards have BOTH of the chips you mention. One just doesn't have it listed specifically in the description, but it is very clearly there when you look at the picture of it.
