First time six CAN FD channels in a USB adapter

With the PCAN-USB X6, we put six CAN FD channels into a single aluminum casing. This allows the connection of several CAN FD and CAN busses via the USB port of a computer. The CAN busses are connected via D-Sub. The data bytes of CAN FD frames can be transmitted with up to 12 Mbit/s. The PCAN-USB X6 is very well suited for use in test benches with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations for motor vehicles, in the product line testing of CAN-based products and for working with multiple CAN and CAN FD busses.

The monitoring software PCAN-View and several application programming interfaces (API) are included for free. The API PCAN-Basic allows the development of own software with CAN and CAN FD support. Based on this, other programming libraries of standardized protocols from the automotive sector are included. Among them is the API PCAN-OBD2 for exchanging specific vehicle parameters. Device drivers are available for Windows® 7, 8, and 10 as well as for Linux.
