Chip Solutions for the CAN FD Connection to PCI Express

For the CAN and CAN FD connection of your hardware design Peak System’s provide several solutions.

Based on an FPGA, up to 4 CAN channels can be implemented via the PCI Express bus using the chip solution PCAN-Chip PCIe FD. With the license from PEAK-System, the FPGA can be programmed via an image with the corresponding functionality.

In addition to the related documentation, the scope of supply includes licenses for the Windows and Linux device drivers, the CAN monitor PCAN-View, and the PCAN-Basic API.
