CAN driver availability for all esd CAN interfaces is listed here.
The CAN-PCIeMini/402-2 is an add-in PCI Express Full-Mini Card, that features two electrically isolated CAN High-Speed interfaces. The PCI Express® Mini Card CAN-PCIeMini/402-2-FD comes with two CAN FD interfaces. The version CAN-PCIeMini/402-2-FD-T can be used for extended temperature range.
The optional adapter CAN-PCIeMini/402-DSUB9 comes with a DSUB9 connector, selectable on board CAN termination and an adapter cable.
All CAN FD versions are fully backwards compatible with CAN and can also be used in Classical CAN applications.
CAN Data Management
The independent CAN nets are driven by the ISO 16845:2004 certified esdACC (esd Advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Altera FPGA.
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-PCIeMini/402-2(-FD) can be operated for example in Hypervisor environments.
The CAN-PCIeMini/402-2(-FD) provides high resolution 64-bit hardware timestamps for CAN messages.
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, RTX(64), VxWorks® and On Time RTOS-32 can be ordered separately.
Higher Layer Protocols
(Classical CAN applications only)
Higher Layer Protocols are available for many operating systems (see order info):
• CANopen Master- and Slave-Stack
Additional free-of-charge esd CAN tools for Windows are downloadable from our website. The tools offer efficient setup and analysis of Classical CAN applications and networks.
