Link to CAN-PCI/402 Hardware Versions Overview of available CAN-PCI/402 hardware versions

Drivers are available for several operating systems (see tables Software Support). Please contact our Sales Team for detailed information about the driver availability for your operating system or if you need drivers for other operating systems.
CAN driver availability for all esd CAN interfaces is listed here.

The CAN-PCI/402-2-FD is a PC board designed for the PCI bus that features two electrically isolated high-speed CAN FD interfaces according to ISO 11898-1:2015.
The CAN FD interfaces are driven by the ISO 16845:2004 certified esdACC (esd advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Intel® FPGA.
With a higher bit rate in the data phase in combination with the increase of efficiency by a higher number of user-data bytes, CAN FD offers a higher data throughput while maintaining the benefits of Classical CAN. The CAN-PCI/402-2-FD is fully backwards compatible with CAN and can be also used in Classical CAN applications.

CAN Data Management
The FPGA supports bus mastering (firstparty DMA) to transfer data to the host memory. This results in a reduction of overall latency on servicing I/O transactions in
particular at higher data rates and a reduced host CPU load.
Due to the usage of MSI (Message Signaled Interrupts) the CAN-PCI/402-2-FD can be operated for example in Hypervisor environments.
The CAN-PCI/402-2-FD provides high resolution hardware timestamps.

Software Support

Windows and Linux (NTCAN-API)
The CAN layer 2 drivers for Windows and Linux are included in the scope of delivery.

Realtime OS (NTCAN-API)
CAN layer 2 drivers for QNX® and RTX64® can be ordered separately, others on request.

Higher Layer Protocols (Classical CAN application only)
Higher Layer Protocols for Classical CAN application are available for many operation systems:

  • CANopen Master- and Slave-Stack
  • J1939
  • ARINC825

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.

Customization on Request
Customized options are available for customized series production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our Sales Team for detailed information.
