Isolated CAN Evaluation Kit
The Isolated CAN Evaluation Kit is a demonstration and evaluation platform for creating Isolated CAN solutions. It can be used in conjunction with CAN capable EFM32 Starter Kits (STKs) like the EFM32 Giant Gecko 11 Starter Kit or the Tiny Gecko 11 Starter Kit. It simplifies the process of creating an isolated CAN solution by offering an already built and functioning platform. The board schematics are available and there are examples that can be run on the EFM32 Starter Kits to communicate via isolated CAN. The board contains one digital isolator, two CAN transceivers, a 20-pin breakout header for easy connection, many headers for debugging and evaluation, and screw terminals for the physical CAN bus.

All Silicon Labs MCU or WLMCU Starter Kits can connect to the Isolated-CAN-EK board. However, only the MCUs or WLMCUs that have a CAN peripheral are function with the ISOLATED-CAN-EXP. There is example code on the SLSTK3701A. This EFM32 Giant Gecko GG11 Starter Kit is needed for full evaluation and demonstration.
