CAN-IB230/PCIe 104

Active CAN Interface for PCI/104-Express

2/4 x CAN (High-Speed), 1 x CAN (Low-Speed), LIN

With the CAN-IB400/PCI HMS offers an PCI interface board based on a modern and highly modular concept. The board covers the entire range of field buses, such as CAN (ISO 11898-2), fault tolerant CAN (ISO 11898-3) and LIN.

CAN-IB230/PCIe 104

Features and benefits

  • Active board with 32 bit microcontroller
  • Up to 4 CAN channels
  • 4-CAN variant provides a software-switchable high/low speed CAN interface
  • 4-CAN variant provides an additional LIN interface
  • Galvanic isolation of the CAN interface
  • Uniform driver packages support all Ixxat CAN and CAN-FD interfaces and allow easy change of the PC interface type
  • Powerful programming interface for Windows “VCI” as well as “ECI” for Linux, QNX, RTX, INtime and VxWorks


The CAN-IB230/PCIe 104 is available with up to four CAN channels and galvanic isolated interfaces. For use in the automotive field one high-speed CAN channel can optionally be switched to low-speed CAN via software. Furthermore, the card can be equipped with one LIN interface.

Multiple cards can be installed in one PC if more CAN channels are required.
