2016-05-03 • Fast CAN FD for PCI Express

The CAN FD standard for a faster CAN communication is now also made available by PEAK-System for computers using the PCI Express slot. The new plug-in card PCAN-PCI Express FD has one or two CAN FD channels, depending on the model. Besides the nominal bitrate of up to 1 Mbit/s, the data bytes of CAN FD frames can be transmitted with up to 12 Mbit/s. A galvanic isolation of the CAN ports protects the electronics of the card and the respective computer against disturbances of up to 500 Volts. The PCAN-PCI Express FD can be operated with ambient temperatures in a range of -40 to +85 °C.

For the PCAN-PCI Express FD, there are device drivers for the Windows versions 7, 8.1, and 10, as well as for Linux. Besides the monitoring software PCAN-View for Windows which provides a plain analysis of the CAN traffic, several programming interfaces for Windows are in the scope of supply. PCAN-Basic 4 enables the basic CAN FD communication with internally developed software in a simple manner. Furthermore, libraries of various standardized protocols from the automotive sector are included for programming.
