Powerful CAN Interface for PCs
The CAN-PCI/400 is a PC board designed for the PCI bus that features two(CANPCI/400-2) or optionally four (CAN-PCI/400-4) electrically isolated CAN High-Speed interfaces according to ISO11898-2. CANPCI/400-4 comes with two CAN interfaces via a separate slot bracket.

CAN Data Management
The independent CAN nets acc. to ISO11898-1 are driven by the esdACC (esd Advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Xilinx® Spartan®-3E FPGA.
Controlled by the FPGA the CAN-PCI/400 supports bus mastering as an initiator, meaning that it is capable of initiating write cycles to the host CPU’s RAM independent of the CPU or the system DMA controller. This results in a reduction of overall latency on servicing I/O transactions in particular at higher data rates and reduced host CPU load. The CAN-PCI/400 provides high resolution 64 bit hardware timestamps with bit time accuracy.
CAN Error injection.

Software Support
CAN layer 2 (NTCAN-API) software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, RTX and RTX64, VxWorks, QNX, and On Time RTOS-32.

Additional free-of-charge esd CAN tools for Windows are downloadable from our website. The tools offer efficient setup and analysis of CAN applications and networks.
