Low cost CAN Interface for PC

The CAN-USB/Micro is a very small CAN-USB interface that fits into a DSUB9 enclosure. The ARM Cortex-M3 micro controller handles CAN data.
The non isolated CAN interface is directly powered by USB.

Free drivers for Windows and Linux included

The product is offered with drivers for Windows and Linux, which can be downloaded free of charge.
In addition to these operating systems, various other (real-time) operating systems are also supported. Detailed information can be found in the description of our order items and, if applicable, in the accessories at the bottom of this page. For more detailed information about the availability of drivers for your operating system, please contact our sales team.

Free CAN tools for fast setup and diagnosis of CAN networks

Our CAN tools for Windows, which are available free of charge in the CAN SDK, significantly support the user in quickly setting up and easily diagnosing CAN, CAN FD and CANopen networks. The possibility of data logging helps the user to record the data traffic for later analysis and to process it further as a CSV file.

SocketCAN Support

Since the Linux® kernel 2.6, this product is directly supported by the SocketCAN integrated in Linux. Thus the product can be used directly without the integration of an additional driver.
If you want to use the proven NTCAN API calls despite the use of SocketCAN, esd electronics offers a NTCAN wrapper library.

NTCAN API and available software stacks

The NTCAN API is a cross-platform software communication interface for CAN hardware. The well-structured API allows easy integration into any application. The functionality and the versatility of the implementation provide all necessary mechanisms to control, configure and monitor CAN networks. In addition to the free version for Windows and Linux, the NTCAN API is also available for many real-time operating systems such as QNX®, RTX® or VxWorks® for a license fee.

Many sophisticated functions make the API ideally suited for use in connection with higher CAN based protocols. For many common protocols corresponding implementations are already available from esd. These higher layer protocols for Classical CAN, which are available for numerous operating systems, include:
