TMS320F28027F: CAN Interface

Part Number: TMS320F28027F
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TCAN1042-Q1

Hi All,

Is it possible to interface the TMS320F28027F MCU with TCAN1042-Q1 to create a CAN interface with the TMS320F28027F device?

  • Hi Leo,

    This TCAN chip acts as a CAN/CANFD transceiver, and needs to be used along with a device which has a CAN interface. 

    The F2802x family of devices does not have a CAN peripheral, and therefore it will not be able to interface.

    However, the F2803x family & F2806xF families do have eCAN peripherals, and they will likely be able to interface to this TCAN transceiver to create a CAN node.  Please note that the eCAN peripheral is designed to work with CAN networks (not the newer, higher datarate, CAN-FD).  Because of this, and assuming that a standard CAN network is what is being implemented, there may be cheaper TI CAN transceivers to consider.

    Thank you,
