PCAN-PCI Express FD (4 Ch)

SKU #: IPEH-004040

The PCAN-PCI Express FD plug-in card made by PEAK System Technik allows the connection of a PC with PCI Express slots to CAN FD and CAN networks. The card provides galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts between the computer and CAN sides. This CAN FD interface for PCI Express systems is also available in a single or dual-channel version.

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 so far) 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.

The monitor software PCAN-View and the programming interface PCAN-Basic for the development of applications with CAN connection are included in the scope of supply and support the new standard CAN FD.
