CAN Data Management

The CPCIserial-CAN/402-2 is a CompactPCI Serial board with two electrically isolated high-speed CAN interfaces, according to ISO 11898-2, which 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 CPCIserial-CAN/402-2 can be operated for example in Hypervisor environments.

The CPCIserial-CAN/402-2 provides high resolution 64-bit hardware timestamps for CAN messages.


Software Support
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
Higher Layer Protocols are available for many operating systems (see order info):
• CANopen Master- and Slave-Stack
• J1939
• ARINC825

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.

Customization on Request
Customized options are available for customized series production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our sales team for detailed information.

CPCIserial-CAN/402-2 Successors with CAN FD
The CPCIserial-CAN/402-2 is not recommended for new designs. (It can still be used in existing systems, e.g. if the drivers shall not be reinstalled.)
Please use the successor CPCIserial-CAN/402-2-FD for new projects.
If you need 4 CAN nets, use the CPCIserial-CAN/402-4-FD. Both CAN FD boards can also be used in Classical CAN applications, because they are fully backwards compatible.


This product is in life cycle stage "end-of-life".
