PCAN-USB Pro FD Adapter

SKU #: IPEH-004061

The new CAN FD Pro from PEAK-System, PCAN-USB Pro FD adapter enables the connection of CAN FD and LIN networks to a computer via USB. Two field busses can be connected at the same time, up to four with appropriate adapter cables (2 x CAN FD, 2 x LIN). Each CAN FD channel is separately isolated against USB and LIN with a maximum of 500 Volts. Its robust aluminum casing makes the PCAN-USB Pro FD adapter suitable for mobile applications.

The recently released CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data Rate) is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer. Under CAN FD a 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.

  • Transmitting and receiving of CAN FD and LIN messages using 2 D-Sub connections (both with pin assignment for the CAN FD and LIN bus)
  • Adapter for High-speed USB 2.0 (compatible to USB 1.1 and USB 3.0)
  • Time stamp resolution 1 μs
  • 5-Volt supply at the D-Sub connector can be activated 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)

CAN operation properties:

  • FPGA implementation of the CAN FD controller
  • 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
  • NXP TJA1044GT CAN transceiver
  • Each CAN FD channel is separately opto-decoupled against USB and LIN 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

LIN operation properties:

  • Bit rates from 1 kbit/s up to 20 kbit/s
  • TJA1021/20 LIN transceiver
  • Both LIN channels (common ground) are optodecoupled against USB and CAN FD
  • Can be used as a LIN master or slave (1 ms master task resolution)
  • Automatic bit rate, frame length, and checksum type recognition
  • Autonomous scheduler with support for unconditional, event, and sporadic frames
  • Hardware can work through a schedule table (up to 8 schedule tables can be configured with a total of 256 slots)
