Configuring ECAN peripheral on a dsPIC33EV @ 60MIPS
Good afternoon everybody,
I hope this thread is posted in the right subforum. If otherwise, I apologize in advance.
I am currently attempting to configure the ECAN peripheral on my dsPIC33EV256GM106 on the dsPIC33EV 5V CAN-LIN Starter Kit. My application needs to run @60 MIPS.
After reading the Family Reference Manual, the application note AN1249, as well as playing the demo software provided, I've noticed that the only Fcy an ECAN peripheral is ever configured is 40 MHz or less. What's more, the FCAN frequency either equals Fcy or is twice its value (defined by the _CANCKS bit value) and cannot exceed 40 MHz.
Does this mean that the ECAN module simply cannot run at, say, 60 or 70 MIPS (i.e. Fosc equaling 120 or 140 MHz )?
Thank you very much, have a nice day.
