Powerful CAN Interfaces for PCs
The module CAN-PC104/331 is a 16-bits-plug-in board designed for the PC/104 bus. It uses a 68331 microcontroller, which cares for the local CAN data management. The CAN data is stored in the local SRAM. Security and consistency of data is guaranteed up to 1 Mbit/s.

CAN Interface
The ISO 11898 compliant CAN interfaces allow a data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The CAN interfaces are electrically isolated from the other potentials by optocouplers and DC/DC converters.

Software Support
CAN layer 2 (NTCAN-API) software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX. The CANopen software package is available for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX. Drivers for other operating systems are available on request.
