Ethernet and CAN on STM32 #can #ethernet

Dear all,

I am new to Zephyr, I would like to use it on a STM32 for a Ethernet-to-CAN converter. While looking on the list of supported boards, and the supported feature, I can not find a single STM32 board what is listed to support both interfaces. Ether is only CAN supported, or Ethernet. The only board what is listed to support both is the K64.

Now I wonder, why for several STM32 boards CAN is listed, but for others of the same chip family is not. For example, the waveshare_open103z, stm32f3_disco, stm32f4_disco, nucleo_l432, nucleo_l433, nucleo_l452 and black_f407 are listed to support CAN, but other STM32 boards with F1xx, F3xx, F4xx L4xx not show support of CAN. As is understand, the IP of the CAN inferface is the same on all F1, for example. So all boards with an F1xx mcu should have an identical MCU interface, from software point of view. I understand, that not all boards have a CAN driver chip, as such difficult to test the CAN feature on a stock Nucleo or disco  board.

How difficult is it, to make CAN working on a STM32 board, what not explicit shows CAN as supported on the Zephyr documentation, but have a sibling what is listed as support CAN? For example, make CAN working on a STM32F412 board (the STM32F407 support CAN). Is it just enable the SM32_CAN in the configuration and then recompile? Or are there bigger problems to expect?  The same goes for other features like DAC, ADC, ect.

Best regards,
Michael
