    Hello guys, hope you are well.

    I'm doing a project on CAN Network (ATMEL microcontroller AT89C51CC01) to communicate with a PC, but I have some problems....

    1- I don't know how to make the algorithm for decoding the PC signal.....

    2- I need to do the circuit schematic for the AT89C51CC01.

    2- I need to interface the two devices (AT89C51CC01 and PC) using UART or USB.....

    Plz Help

    1 select controller (done - AT89C51CC01)
    2 locate datasheet (done -
    3 read datasheet
    4 design test board, focus on essential pins (power, reset, oscillator, uart, can, then add few buttons and leds on general purpose pins; uart will need max232 or ftdi chip)
    5 get tool chain (programming software) and programmer (to load bootloader for example, after that you can just use uart for example to program)
    6 plan (paper, spreadsheet, whiteboard, whatever works for you) then implement. if you are starting, you certainly need to get "hello world" type of program first (flash led, read buttons etc) before embarking on mcu to mcu communication.
