Using PiCAN 2 (Can) on Jetson Nano

I am trying to see if a PiCAN 2 will work on a Jetson Nano. It connects via the GPIO, however, it fails to find the device (can0).

Is there something I need to enable before Can works? Using ifconfig -a the device does not appear.

Hi max.newberry,

Please refer to below topic to see if can gain some ideas:


Can you please share more details of your setup. What and How did you make connections.
You have to insert CAN modules to make CAN nodes up on network
modprobe can
modprobe can-raw.

But I am not sure this will help as I have not tried PiCAN. It will be helpful if you share details so that I can try out here.
