The CAN-USB interface schematics

Although the iCub comes with a custom quad-can interface card, for debugging it is sometime convenient to have an extra can bus interface: Yarp has a device driver for the ESD CAN bus mini controller.

The table below reports the details. See the bill of materials for exact quantities.
