CAN Interfaces for CompactPCI Systems
The module CPCI-CAN/331 is a CompactPCI board in euro format. It uses a 68331 microcontroller which cares for the local CAN data management. The CAN data is stored in the local SRAM. Security and consistency of data is guaranteed up to 1 Mbit/s.

CAN Interface
The ISO 11898 compliant CAN interface allows a data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The CAN interface is electrically isolated from the other potentials by optocouplers and DC/DC converters.

Software Support
CAN layer 2 (NTCAN-API) software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, RTX/RTX64, VxWorks and QNX.
Other drivers are available on request.
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.
