I am still fairly new to CAN bus and working to understand the bus recovery. The MSCAN documentation reads that once a node enters bus-off it "will become error active again after counting 128 occurrences of 11 consecutive recessive bits on the CAN bus". I am trying to confirm that this is not 128 consecutive occurrences.
I believe that it is not consecutive, since the documentation does not read that way for the 128 occurrences, yet states explicitly for the 11 consecutive recessive bits.
I have also found the following post that states:
If that were not the case then a node with a defective receiver would try to send, go bus off, then go bus on again and try to send thereby using 100% of the bus. The 128 * 11 makes it possible for 128 other messages to sneak through while this defective node goes through its bus on/off cycle.
Therefore it would seem that it is understood that it is 128 nonconsecutive occurrences of 11 consecutive recessive bits.
Is there further confirmation of this understanding?
