I was wondering what the difference between MCAN and CAN were? I am doing some research on some SAM E70 chips, and came across the MCAN (master CAN). I tried googling it, but I didn't find anything on it really. The quote below is from the datasheet. I guess I am more curious than anything about this MCAN since I cannot seem to find too much about it. 

The Controller Area Network (MCAN) performs communication according to ISO11898-1 (Bosch CAN specification 2.0 part A,B) and to Bosch CAN FD specification V1.0. Additional transceiver hardware is required for connection to the physical layer.

 Thank you for your time.
