CAN or Controlled Area Network was introduced by Bosch in the 80s. It's a serial bus for communication of electrical components inside a vehicle. The click we have today, ATA6563 click, is a high-speed CAN transceiver.
ATA6563 click carries the ATA6563 high-speed CAN transceiver. The click is designed to run on a 5V power supply. Use the VIO SEL jumper for selecting the 3.3V or 5V logic level.
It communicates with the target microcontroller over UART interface, with additional functionality provided by the AN pin on the mikroBUS™ line.
The transceiver is designed for high-speed (up to 5 Mbps) CAN applications in the automotive industry, providing differential transmit and receive capability to (a microcontroller with) a CAN protocol controller.
