Description:

With the arrival of the PIC18FXX8X family of microcontrollers featuring the Enhanced Control Area Network (ECAN) module, designers can now choose between the original CAN module present in the PIC18FXX8 family and the new ECAN-enabled parts.

This application note presents communication time comparisons along with conclusions and recommendations intended to help designers find the best CAN-based solution given an application and available parts.

These comparisons and related recommendations are based on the following rules:

  1. Code processing time measured in number of instructions (assembly language)
  2. Transmission and reception times measured in bit time
