Wide Choice of Hardware Designs

The CPCIserial-CAN/402 is a CompactPCI Serial board with two electrically isolated high-speed CAN interfaces according to ISO 11898-2.

CAN Data Management

The independent CAN nets according to ISO 11898-1 are driven by the esdACC (esd Advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Altera® FPGA. Controlled by the FPGA the CPCIserial-CAN/402 supports bus mastering as an initiator, meaning that it is capable of initiating write cycles to the host CPU’s RAM independent of the CPU or the system DMA controller. This results in a reduction of overall latency on servicing I/O transactions in particular at higher data rates and reduced host CPU load. The CPCIserial-CAN/402 provides high resolution hardware timestamps.

Software Support

CAN layer 2 (NTCAN-API) software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, VxWorks, QNX, RTX, RTX64 and On Time RTOS-32.
The CANopen software package is available for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX.

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.
