A64 and SPI
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:02:23 PM »
Hi,

We were hoping to get canbus working in combination with the Olimex A64 through either the MCP2515 or the MCP2517, I have the breakout board which can be used to control canbus from an SPI interface, but I am at a loss when it comes to getting the SPI interface working on the A64. Has this been implemented yet? And if so how do I get it working?

Thank you for your time,
LJ

Did you try googling things like SPI and CAN or SPI and CANBUS or Linux and SPI and MCP2515 or ... well you get the idea.

Leave out the specific CPU to get more matches.

On which kernel are you? IIRC the mainline kernel has support for the SPI on A64 since 4.15.

HTH,
