Thread: Issue of CAN Bus-off in TC277TE Tricore Controller

    Issue of CAN Bus-off in TC277TE Tricore Controller

    Hello Developers,

    I am trying to test CAN bus-off in TC277. For CAN bus-off to happen any of the error counters TEC or REC should reach to 256 value. For testing I am transmitting Random frames while shorting Tx and Rx. That should Increment TEC counter.
    Problem is that TEC is incremented till 0x80 means 128 decimal. After that I found no change in it even though transmitting frames are still going. In this case I am unable to have CAN bus-off.

    What might not possibly increment TEC counter after 128 is my question ?

    If you've shorted Tx and Rx together, then there won't be an ACK, and the TEC will not increment past the passive error limit of 128, per this part of the CAN spec:

    Exception 1:
    If the TRANSMITTER is ’error passive’ and detects an ACKNOWLEDGMENT ERROR because of not detecting a ’dominant’ ACK and does not detect a ’dominant’ bit while sending its PASSIVE ERROR FLAG.
    Exception 2:
    If the TRANSMITTER sends an ERROR FLAG because a STUFF ERROR occurred during ARBITRATION whereby the STUFFBIT is located before the RTR bit, and should have been ’recessive’, and has been sent as ’recessive’ but monitored as ’dominant’.
    In exceptions 1 and 2 the TRANSMIT ERROR COUNT is not changed.
