Cost-effective, active PCIexpress interface for CAN (High- and Low-Speed), LIN and K-Line
With the CAN-IB200/PCIe IXXAT offers an interface board based on a modern and highly modular concept. The card covers the entire range of field buses, such as CAN (ISO 11898-2), fault tolerant CAN (ISO 11898-3), LIN and K-LINE. With its powerful 32 bit microcontroller system the CAN-IB200/PCIe fulfills even high reqirements in data pre-processing, like intelligent data handling and active filtering of the received and transmitted messages. The interface is available with a standard or a low-profile slot bracket.
The CAN-IB200/PCIe is available with up to four CAN channels and can be delivered with galvanic isolated interfaces. For use in the automotive field the high-speed CAN channels can optionally be switched to low-speed CAN via software. In addition, the card can be equipped with up to four LIN or K-Line interfaces. Furthermore, the modular architecture of the interface card enables the easy extension with customer specific interfaces via piggyback modules.
Due to the high number of interfaces, the board is also suitable for demanding applications - such as test benches, handling systems or manufacturing plants. If necessary, the number of interface channels can be extended by using multiple cards within one PC.
For the connection to the PC, IXXAT delivers the card with its proven VCI driver for Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows7. The driver supports all interfaces on the card and allows their usage both with customer specific programs or with the analysis and configuration tools from IXXAT. The VCI driver also supports all other PC interfaces offered by IXXAT, which enables the user to easily switch the type of interface without any adaptation of the customer application.
