Powerful CAN-FD multi-channel Ixxat PC-interface for automotive test systems and industrial applications
HMS Networks now extends its Ixxat® PC-interface portfolio with the multi-channel interface CAN-IB 640/PCIe that offers four channels each for CAN-FD/CAN and LIN connectivity.
Performance and intelligence in focus
The CAN-IB 640/PCIe is an active PC-interface with a powerful onboard microcontroller system, which is able to read, timestamp and filter large amounts of data in real-time. The network connection is done via two D-Sub 9 connectors, which are galvanically isolated to protect the interface card and the connected PC system.
Flexible and versatile connection to the customer PC-application
All Ixxat CAN interfaces come with extensive driver packages for Windows and Linux, including SocketCAN. The drivers allow easy and fast development of customer-specific applications, most notably since all Ixxat PCI-cards can be interfaced from the application in the same way. This enables very flexible and versatile switching between different types of Ixxat PC-interfaces, e.g. USB, PCIe, PCIe Mini, and Ethernet, without needing to adapt the customer application software each time. A simple monitoring tool for Windows is included in the scope of delivery, but HMS also offers numerous additional analysis and configuration tools for different purposes and use cases.
In addition to the proprietary driver packages, standardized APIs such as the J2534-Passthru or D-PDU API, are available as options, simplifying connectivity to 3rd party tools which use these standardized APIs.
