PCAN-USB Hub Press Release

2009-06-16 • All-in-one adapter for communication via CAN, USB and RS-232


The PEAK-System Technik GmbH offers a new module, the PCAN-USB Hub. It is a high-speed USB hub with multiple hardware interfaces in one device, one CAN, two RS-232, and two USB interfaces.

The hub can be supplied passively via the USB connection to the computer or actively by an external power supply. With jumpers a 5-volt supply can be engaged on pin 1 and an external voltage on pin 9 of the CAN port. By software command the external power supply to the CAN connector can be switched. The High-speed CAN channel complies with ISO 11898-2 with a maximum transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. CAN specification 2.0A and 2.0B are fulfilled.

At two high-speed USB 2.0 ports it is possible to connect additional USB devices. A hub controller with four transaction translators assures high transfer rates even with full-speed USB 1.1 devices connected.

The access to the CAN interface is done via a single API for all CAN interfaces of the PCAN-series.
