The MCP2515 is a second generation stand-alone CAN controller. It is pin and function compatible with the MCP2510 and also includes upgraded features like faster throughput, databyte filtering, and support for time-triggered protocols.
The MCP2551 is a high-speed CAN transceiver, fault-tolerant device that serves as the interface between a CAN protocol controller and the physical bus. The MCP2551 provides differential transmit and receive capability for the CAN protocol controller and is fully compatible with the ISO-11898 standar..
This powerful 10 MIPS (100 nanosecond instruction execution) yet easy-to-program (only 77 single word instructions) CMOS FLASH-based 8-bit microcontroller packs Microchip's powerful PIC® architecture into an 40- or 44-pin package and is upwards compatible with the PIC16C5X, PIC12CXXX, PIC16CXX and P..
