wiki/ news/ 2002-07-07 - Getting CAN nodes working w/PicCore

Participants: Andrew, Paul, Nate, Jamey and James.

The PicCore CAN drivers for the PIC18F458 are now half done - the transmit side now works. It turns out that the last week of frustration was due to two wires being reversed. Ack. After that was fixed, it worked great.

Paul, Nate and Andrew (and Jamey too) went over the CAN node firmware framework and improved it on the fly - new code was posted. We talke a bit about the GPS and the overlay board applications as well.

James and Jamey worked on the FC side of the CAN bus, attempting to tie the CAN driver to CanMuxer using "Can widget".

We're on our way!
