Title:
Upgrading from the MCP2510 to the MCP2515

Description:
The MCP2510 stand-alone CAN controller was originally developed to give CAN system and module designers more flexibility in their design by allowing them to choose the best processor for their application. By using the MCP2510, designers were not restricted to using processors with integrated CAN controllers. Today, the CAN market continues to grow and proliferate into other markets and different applications and, both increasingly complex nodes and simpler nodes are being developed to further distribute control among the CAN network. The complex nodes may require using a 32-bit MCU, ASIC, CPLD, DSP or some other device that does not have an on-board CAN controller. The simple nodes may only require small program space and not need all of the extra peripherals found on many of the MCUs with integrated CAN.
