Hi, I am starting to read about the CAN bus for space use and was wondering if anyone here has any experience or words of wisdom?

I am just breaking into the space realm of business and still looking for my niche to be employed in the industry. My embedded skills are a work in progress, and ideally looking for a promotional project to help aid my employment status within the cubesat arena.

CAN bus knowledge is at the top of my agenda to master, any guides/ demo project ideas etc would be appreciated.

21:20:47@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur Scholz kerosene98: Great to hear about your interest in CAN! We are working on a prototype to demonstrate a mix of ECSS-CAN (for redundancy managemnt) and ISO-TP (for large messages)
21:21:03@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzDocuments are here: https://vault.dediserve.com/s/r2yM6NWfQLa9Dtj
21:21:40@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzThe micropython code is here: https://gitlab.com/librecube/prototypes/micropython-space-can
21:23:51@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzFeel free to post to the forum for detailed questions: https://community.libre.space/t/ecss-can-bus-protocol-for-cubesats/1086/5

19:59:40@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzHere the final version of SpaceCAN, the reliable and robust monitoring & control bus for LibreCube systems (and other CubeSats): https://wiki.librecube.org/index.php?title=SpaceCAN
20:00:39@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzAn implementation of SpaceCAN in micropython is here https://gitlab.com/librecube/elements/LC2901 and the docs for it are here https://micropython-space-can.readthedocs.io

23:30:32@INCO.matrix:matrix.orgINCOHi! I heard about LibreCube and especially like your approach of integrating existing space industry standards into the CubeSat formfactor. Do you already have plans for an on-board software architecture or operating system?
29 Dec 2018
20:51:36@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzThis is still open. Something like FreeRTOS or RTEMS could be used; fully open source. Or NASA OSAL.
22:35:22@INCO.matrix:matrix.orgINCOOk! Our institues OBSW people have made quite some progress in porting the open source RTEMS based FlightSoftwareFrameWork to other architectures besides LEON3FT since it was presented @ OSCW, maybe that could also be an option after they have improved the documentation. ;)

08:26:43@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzThat's interesting! Please share more details.
08:27:24@artur.librecube:matrix.orgArtur ScholzPS: As you mentioned LEON, there is a Micropython port for it: https://nsc.nasa.gov/docs/default-source/event-docs/trismac-2018/trismac-presentations/fedi-casas-micropython.pdf

Here is a challenge: Who wants to re-engineer a CubeSat integration jig?
(That is a mechanical fixture to hold the CubeSat above the desk to support assembly)?

An inspiration on how it could look like is here:

The goal is to recreate this in OpenSCAD or FreeCAD and make the design
available for free under an open source license.

To contribute, here is the workflow:

  • Fork it (https://gitlab.com/librecube/elements/LC3203)
  • Create your feature branch (git checkout -b feature/holder)
  • Make your contributions
  • Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some things')
  • Push to the branch (git push origin feature/holder)
  • Create a new Pull Request

PS: You may want to refer to this repository on how to structure and
name folders and files.
