MCP2517FD/MCP2518FD with 1Mbps CAN transceiver on an existing CAN2.0B bus
I have an existing CAN bus (CAN2.0B) which doesn't support CAN FD protocol. In my current bus design I am using few MCP2515 CAN controllers (with the micro-controllers without in built CAN) and few other micro-controllers (which have in built CAN controller) and none of them support CAN FD. On this existing CAN bus, I would like to add MCP2517FD/MCP2518FD as it has 32 buffers (as for MCP2515 number of transmit and receive buffers are fixed to 3 and 2 respectively). And I want to use MCP2517FD/MCP2518FD exclusively in CAN2.0B mode and interface it to normal 1Mbps CAN transceiver (for e.g. MCP2551) and add to the existing bus. Would it be feasible? Will there be any conflicts?
Thanks and Regards,
