Help text

Controller Area Network (CAN) is serial communications protocol up to 1Mbit/s for its original release (now known as Classical CAN) and up to 8Mbit/s for the more recent CAN with Flexible Data-Rate (CAN-FD). The CAN bus was originally mainly for automotive, but is now widely used in marine (NMEA2000), industrial, and medical applications. More information on the CAN network protocol family PF_CAN is contained in <Documentation/networking/can.rst>.

This section contains all the CAN(-FD) device drivers including the virtual ones. If you own such devices or plan to use the virtual CAN interfaces to develop applications, say Y here.

To compile as a module, choose M here: the module will be called can-dev.
