UAVCAN Legacy Hardware Spec

Is the M8 connector from the legacy spec still valid? Thanks.

Hi David,

The UAVCAN v1 Spec no longer defines the physical layer at all. This responsibility is transferred over to domain-specific standards, one of which is the DS-015 UAVCAN Drone Standard. The current revision of DS-015 defines only the old UAVCAN/CAN Micro connector (based on JST GH 4-pin), but it explicitly announces the possibility of supporting the standard D-Sub and the M8 you are inquiring about in the future:

So, to answer your question: yes, it is valid, but it is not yet formally specified.

OK. Good to know. Thanks.
