CAN-IB520/PCIe Mini

Passive CAN FD Interface for PCI Express Mini


With the CAN-IB520/PCIe Mini HMS offers an interface board specially designed for applications which require the implementation of a CAN FD interface with minimum space requirements. The interface has one CAN channel and can send and receive CAN FD (ISO as well as non-ISO format) or CAN 2.0 A/B messages.

CAN-IB520/PCIe Mini

Features and benefits

  • Economically priced passive board (no microprocessor on board)
  • Extremely compact design
  • One CAN channel (High Speed CAN oder CAN-FD)
  • 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

If necessary, the number of interface channels can be extended by using multiple cards within one PC.
