SKU #: IPEH-004022

The new CAN FD adapter from PEAK-System PCAN-USB FD allows the connection of CAN FD and classic CAN networks to a computer via USB. The simple handling and its compact plastic casing make the adapter suitable for mobile applications. This CAN interface device features galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts which decouples the PC side from the CAN bus. Also available in galvanically isolated and non-isolated classic CAN versions.

The new CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data Rate) is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer. The maximum of 64 data bytes per CAN FD frame (instead of 8 for conventional CAN) can be transmitted with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. CAN FD is downward-compatible to the CAN 2.0 A/B standard, thus CAN FD nodes can be used in existing CAN networks. However, in this case the CAN FD extensions are not applicable.


  • Adapter for High-speed USB 2.0 (compatible to USB 1.1 and USB 3.0)
  • Complies with CAN specifications 2.0 A/B and FD 1.0
  • CAN FD bit rates for the data field (64 bytes max.) from 40 kbit/s up to 12 Mbit/s
  • CAN bit rates from 40 kbit/s up to 1 Mbit/s
  • Time stamp resolution 1 μs
  • CAN bus connection via D-Sub, 9-pin
    (in accordance with CiA® 102)
  • FPGA implementation of the CAN FD controller
  • NXP TJA1044GT CAN transceiver
  • Galvanic isolation up to 500 V
  • CAN termination can be activated through a solder jumper
  • Measurement of bus load including error frames and overload frames
  • Induced error generation for incoming and outgoing CAN messages
  • 5-Volt supply to the CAN connection can be connected through a solder jumper, e.g. for external bus converter
  • Voltage supply via USB
  • Extended operating temperature range from -40 to 85 °C (-40 to 185 °F)
