Device tree configuration[edit | edit source]

Here below an example of device tree configuration used on standard DAVE's kit for the AXEL ULite SOM:

From imx6ul-lynx-som0013-cb00XX.dts:

&can1 {
    pinctrl-names = "default";
    pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_flexcan1>;
    status = "okay";

From imx6ul-lynx-som0013.dtsi:

&iomuxc {
        pinctrl-names = "default";
        pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_hog_gpios>;

        imx6ul-lynx {
            pinctrl_flexcan1: flexcan1grp{
                    fsl,pins = <
                            MX6UL_PAD_LCD_DATA09__FLEXCAN1_RX       0x1b020
                            MX6UL_PAD_LCD_DATA08__FLEXCAN1_TX       0x1b020

Each CAN port appears like a networking interface in the form canX where X is the port number.

Information about programming the CAN socket interface is given in the kernel tree under Documentation/networking/can.txt
