Active CAN FD Interface for PCI Express

4 x CAN FD/CAN (switchable), 4 x LIN

With the CAN-IB640/PCIe HMS offers a CAN FD interface board based on a modern and highly modular architecture concept. The interface is available with up to four CAN channels. Each channel can send and receive either CAN FD or CAN 2.0A/B messages. In addition four LIN channels are available.


Features and benefits

  • Active card with 32 bit microcontroller
  • Four CAN channels (High-Speed CAN or CAN FD)
  • Four LIN channels
  • All fieldbuses accessible via two D-Sub-9 connections
  • Single Lane (x1) PCI-Express-Interface
  • Galvanic isolation of the CAN interface
  • Common driver interface support for all Ixxat CAN and CAN FD interfaces allows easy change of the PC interface type
  • Powerful programming interface for Windows “VCI” and “ECI” for Linux and VxWorks

The CAN-IB640/PCIe is an active interface board which fulfills even high requirements in data pre-processing, like intelligent data handling and active filtering of the received and transmitted messages.
