RoboLoCo (Team 5338) is again giving away 30 CAN Hub PCB kits, see our previous post here. The kits include all parts needed to make the most common configuration of the hub. All that is needed is to solder the provided screw terminals to the PCB.
Overview Of The Board
The CAN PCB allows for the creation of a star topology for the CAN bus. The board features screw terminals for connecting Talons, the PDP, RoboRio, and other CAN based devices. There’s also spots for optional termination resistors and jumpers allowing solderless enable/disable of the termination resistors should you be using devices without a built-in termination resistor. The plans on github include Eagle board and schematic files along with STLs. We have been happy with the performance from before.
Changes From 2018
Black with white silkscreen and ENIG
Removed holes for wire management
Remade during 2019 season to make 2019 legal
Better silkscreen markings
The PCBs themselves
Board Design & Custom Holder from last year
Optional Parts, as explained in the repo README
The CAN PCB was initially created by Arvind Srinivasan (@Arvind_S) during the 2018 season. The intent was to both simplify wiring and improve CAN resilience. The first public release was posted to Chief Delphi in March 2018.
