Cost-effective and flexible low-profile PCIexpress card for CAN, LIN and other bus systems
With the new CAN-IB100/PCIe IXXAT is treading new ways in terms of field bus interface cards. The passive CAN PCIexpress card is based on a modern and highly modular concept. Due to this, it is very flexible and versatile, and all this at a very low price. Besides the standard version, the interface card is also available as low-profile board.
The CAN-IB100/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.
The modular architecture of the interface board enables also the extension with customer specific interfaces using piggyback modules. This allows a versatile usage of the CAN-IB100/PCIe, both in industrial and in automotive applications.
For the connection to the PC, IXXAT delivers the card with its proven VCI driver. The Windows 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. In addition, drivers for the real-time Windows extensions RTX and InTime as well as for Linux are available.
