Developing a CAN design these days should consider an upgrade to CAN FD. CAN FD is in discussion since two years and I expect first cars using it in late 2015. Hopefully Microchip or Bosch will offer an SPI connected CAN controller supporting CAN FD. I'm not sure if SPI is a good solution handling the larger amount of data. Any thoughts on this topic?
Automotive experts are working hard to establish CAN FD in cars. General Motors, Daimler, VW and more. We had a CAN FD Plugfest in October last year were all main micro controller manufacturers took part.
