CAN driver availability for all esd CAN interfaces is listed here.
The PMC-CAN/402-4-FD comes with four independent CAN FD interfaces according to ISO 11898-1:2015, which are driven by the ISO 16845:2004 certified esdACC (esd advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Altera FPGA.
PMC-CAN/402-4-FD is fully backwards compatible with CAN and can also be used in Classical CAN applications.
CAN Data Management
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 PMC-CAN/402-4-FD can be operated for example in Hypervisor environments. The PMC-CAN/402-4-FD provides high resolution 64-bit hardware timestamps for CAN messages.
The PMC-CAN/402-4-FD-IRIG-B offers an additional IRIG-B interface via DSUB25 for analog or RS-422 IRIG-B coded signals. Both are electrically isolated.
IRIG-B evaluation is controlled by an 8051 microcontroller integrated in the FPGA.
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 application 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 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.
The XMC-CAN/402-4-FD board comes with an XMC interface instead of the PMC interface.
