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

CAN Interface
The ISO 11898 compliant CAN interfaces allow a data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The CAN interface is electrically isolated from the other potentials.

Software Support
Software drivers are available for Windows®, Linux®, RTX, VxWorks®, QNX®, SGI®-IRIX®6.5, AIX® and Solaris®.
Drivers for other operating systems are available as well.
Custom firmware is possible.
Libraries for the higher layer protocols CANopen and J1939 are available.

Additional free-of-charge esd CAN tools for Windows offer efficient setup and analysis of CAN applications and networks.
