I am a student working on a final year project which is a DeviceNet/Ethernet gateway. I am using a Mitsubishi M-16C micro-controller. A previous student has interfaced a Ethernet NIC card to the micro which i am using. I am using the MCP2510 CAN controller for the interface to the DeviceNet Network. Currently i can talk to the CAN controller from the micro. Next step is to get the micro recognised on the DeviceNet network.
I was wondering if anybody has attempted this before and has any pointers for me. I am slowly working my way through the DeviceNet specifications. What are the minimal components of the DeviceNet specification i should be looking at implementing?
Any suggestions/pointers are much appreciated.
