Checking the BUS idle for CAN transmission

    I am doing the project using CAN(Fujitsu MB90F450). Before
    transmitting the data on the CAN network it is necessary to check
    whether the Bus is in the Idle state. Any of you can suggest me on how
    to check the bus idle. is only one receive function enough for both
    the remote frame and data frame?, providing the coding also very useful
    for me.

    Thanks in advance

    Normally there is no need to ensure the bus is in the idle state.
    The CAN controller on Fujitsu chip will do that for you.
    Just put the message you want to send into one of the buffers and set the
    corresponding TRQ flag.
    BTW: When storing the message into the buffer you *must* do this with 16bit
    access, something memcpy(...) will not work. This is specialty of this
