High Resolution Hardware Timestamps for CAN

Drivers are available for several Operating Systems (see tables Software Support below). For other OS please contact our Support.
CAN driver availability for all esd CAN interfaces is listed here.


PCI-PowerPC Board
The CAN-PCI/405 uses PCI bus mastering to achieve high throughput and to relieve the main CPU.

CAN Interfaces
The CAN-PCI/405-2 provides two ISO 11898-compliant CAN interfaces based on SJA1000 CAN controllers. The CAN-PCI/405-4 offers two additional CAN interfaces located on an adapter board. The CAN interfaces allow a data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The interfaces are electrically isolated.
The CAN-PCI/405 provides high resolution hardware timestamps.

Software Support
Software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, QNX, RTX and On Time RTOS-32.
Libraries for the higher layer protocols CANopen and J1939 are available.
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.
