Kvaser AB introduced Kvaser PCIEcan 4xHS, a highly integrated, high-speed controller area network (CAN) card that adds four high-speed CAN channels to any standard computer board with PCI Express capability. Offering silent mode, error frame detection/generation and an on-board buffer, this small form-factor add-on board fits many embedded data acquisition systems and is CAN-FD ready.
The PCIEcan 4xHS has an average response time of 45µs. An onboard buffer ensures that there is no risk of the card ‘dropping’ messages, meaning that the Kvaser PCIEcan 4xHS is as robust as it is responsive. This is very useful in ‘ping-pong protocols’ such as firmware updates.
This is a low profile card (86 x 69mm) that is fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000 and DeviceNet. It offers a wide operating temperature of 0oC to +85oC and galvanically isolated CAN bus drivers.
