I'm pretty new to CAN bus stuff and I'm a bit confused about how should I start the development.
There are a lot of different USB-CAN interfaces, but are there "easy" ways to generate test traffic etc without actually building your own devices and connecting them to the bus? I'd just like to read some CAN messages on a Linux host PC.
I can buy a USB-CAN interface, but what then? :) In Ebay there's nothing, Farnell sells some Microchip CAN demonstration boards for their chips, but I guess they use a proprietary USB interface and Windows software etc.
