PC Interfaces

Enable PC-based or embedded analysis and control
of CAN, CAN FD and LIN based systems.


Ixxat PC interfaces are used in a wide range of applications, either in test benches to connect the devices to be tested to the test computer or as a control interface in production or handling systems.  

The drivers for Windows (VCI), Linux and real-time operating systems (ECI), included in the scope of supply, have an identical programming interface for all interfaces and enable a quick and easy switch between cards without adaptation to the customer's application. Thus, the optimum interface in terms of area of application, performance requirements or target unit costs can be selected at any time.

CAN-IB520/PCIe Mini

Passive CAN FD Interface for PCI Express Mini

1 x CAN FD, CAN

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.

Order codes: 1.01.0237.12010

CAN-IB520

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.
