CAN interface series for PCI

With CAN (HS/LS) and LIN support.


Active CAN Interface for PCI

1-4 x CAN (High-/Low-Speed), LIN

With the CAN-IB400/PCI HMS offers an PCI interface board based on a modern and highly modular concept. The board covers the entire range of field buses, such as CAN (ISO 11898-2), fault tolerant CAN (ISO 11898-3) and LIN.

Order codes: 1.01.0293.12001, 1.01.0293.22001


Features and benefits

  • Active PCI board with 32 bit microcontroller
  • Easy expandable via field bus expansion and expansion board
  • Up to four CAN channels (High-/Low-Speed optional switchable)
  • LIN optional
  • 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


The CAN-IB400/PCI is available with up to four CAN channels and 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 interfaces. Furthermore, the modular architecture of the PCI 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.
