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.
