The Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS is a highly-integrated CAN add-on board that allows embedded system developers to add CAN functionality to any standard computer board with mini PCI Express capability. The piggyback CAN board offers a single channel, high speed CAN interface with error frame detection and on-board buffer. This board has a low profile connector that complies with the mini PCI Express standard, which connects via a cable to a DSUB connector (or other type) at the computer housing. With just the CAN communication link itself exposed, this arrangement protects total system EMC performance because all the electronics remain inside the computer housing. In car or truck applications, this can be particularly important. Designed for applications requiring high performance but a small form factor, this board is ideal for embedded data acquisition systems and is particularly tailored for fleet management.

  • Supports a bit rate from 40 to 1000 kbit/s and a CAN transfer rate up to 20000 messages/s.
  • Time stamp accuracy is 25 µs.
  • Low profile connector complies with the mini PCI Express standard, which connects via a cable to a DSUB (or other type) at the computer housing.
  • A 4 pin Molex connector provides single CAN channel access.
  • Complies with EN 61000-6-2:2005, specifying EMC immunity for industrial environments.
  • Operates over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85°C.
  • Kvaser's free of charge CANLIB SDK can be used to develop software for the Mini PCI Express HS board.
  • Support for Linux, in the form of drivers and a dedicated SDK, are available as a separate download
  • Support for SocketCAN, see elinux.org for details.
  • Includes Molex to DSUB9 cable adapter.
