Creating CAN 2 USB device

Question asked by Kuchera.Kenny on Sep 23, 2016
I'd like to create my own CAN 2 USB device. I understand what a CAN tranceiver does but it isn't clear to me yet what Firmware should run on the MCU. Is this only CAN controller software or would I need other code? Could I just purchase a CAN controller?

My goal is to create a device that shows up on my Linux PC as a CAN device (not slcan) so it can work with SocketCAN. I simply want to use it to monitor and send packets to a CAN bus. Any info to push me in the right direction of how to do this would be great. Thanks!
