We have just contributed an eCos driver for the CANopen Node project.
The driver uses the eCos CAN I/O layer to implement the CAN
functionality and uses the eCos generic flash driver to implement
persistent parameters storage of the CANopen object dictionary.
CANopenNode is an open source software stack used for serial
communication of multiple devices over the CAN/CANopen Network. It works
on different microcontrollers, is reliable, simple and powerful and is
suitable for industrial or home automation.
The eCos port has been developed and tested with the Olimex
LPC-L2294-1MB board and eCos LPC2xxx CAN driver.
Would be great to see this info on the "Contributions and Development
Projects" page or in the news. Should I provide a patch for the webpage
or is there a native speaker that could add this information?
Thank you and regards,

Yes, that is right at the moment. You need to provide your object files
and static libraries so that it is possible to re-link the application.
I will ask the CANopen Node maintainer Janez, if he would accept the
eCos license (LGPL with linking exception).
