For example, in the 1.4 firmware release thread (at this link)
-CAN Broadcasting - two new options
Holset HE351VE VGT turbo - this broadcasts 'boost duty' with a 29bit CAN identifier specific to the turbo.
-User defined testing - allows custom CAN packets to be broadcast
-CAN Realtime Data Broadcasting - this is a major enhancement allowing all of the engine parameters to be broadcast to the CAN using standard 11bit identifiers which can then be received and displayed by suitable 3rd party dashes or dash loggers.
-CAN Receiving - another major enhancement is the ability to receive and process standard 11bit CAN messages. These can be used to collect remote sensor data or wheel speed from ABS
And under known issues:
"can_in" polling setting corrupts "can_out". See Megasquirt Support Forum (MSEXTRA) ? Bug: 1.4 Firmware and IO Extender (View topic)
CAN passthrough may have issues with some older IO-x firmwares.
Boost by speed scaling issue.
After doing a lot of looking on msextra, it seems that per capita of ms users, this forum has a lot more people gravitating to the CAN functionality. Seeing those as part of the new firmware made me wonder if anyone here had insight on the new firmware. That's really what made this idea pop into my head. I find more succinct answers here that are easier to apply to my MS life on this forum then over there.
TL;DR I am a
Also, for the record... using CAN or even "can bus" as a search term sucks.
