CAN Data Management
The PMC-CAN/402-4 comes with four independent CAN nets according to ISO 11898-1, which are driven by the ISO 16845:2004 certified esdACC (esd advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Altera FPGA.
The CAN FD versions are available with two or four independent CAN FD interfaces according to ISO 11898-1:2015.
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.
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
The optional IRIG-B interface offers inputs for analog or RS-422 IRIG-B coded signals. Both are electrically isolated. IRIG-B evaluation is controlled by a microcontroller integrated in the FPGA.
A customized version is available on request for an extended temperature range.
The XMC-CAN/402-4 board comes with an XMC interface instead of the PMC interface.
