ChipKit WiFi and CAN


I am wanting to use a ChipKit board for a robot using WiFi and CAN.
I am only seeing boards with wired network and CAN,  is there an option I am not seeing?

The MAX32 has the can, but it has an Ethernet also - can the MAX32 be used with the WiFi Shield?

The WiFire or WF32 have the WiFi, but not the CAN, the only shield I see here that has CAN is the Ethernet Shield, will they work together?

or am I better off with a Wi-Fire or WF32 and a CAN shield from else where like https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10039

Hi Bill,

You are correct in only seeing those boards. We do not currently offer a board/shield combination that can achieve both WiFi and CAN. The WiFi Shield doesn't have the same form factor as the Max32, so it will not be able to directly plug into it.

I would recommend that you follow your last suggestion of using either the Wi-FIRE or the WF32 with a compatible 3rd party CAN shield.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
