Fault tolerant CAN (ISO11898-3) is terminated differently than high speed CAN (ISO11898-2). Therefore the signal levels for dominant and especially recessive bits differ.
Newer CAN FD compatible transceivers can have baudrates up to at least 8 MBit/s, but none of their datasheets specify minimal baudrates or compliance with ISO11898-3.
Is it safe to assume they are backwards compatible or should I look for some kind of feature indication in the datasheet?
The only problem I can think of is the dominant timeout function of some transceivers. If the baud rate is too low, it might cause problems with longer strings of dominant bits.
