The CAN-PCIe/400 is a PC board designed for the PCI Express bus that features two (CAN-PCIe/400-2) or four (CAN-PCIe/400-4) CAN High-Speed interfaces acc. to ISO 11898-2. The CAN-PCIe/400-4 board utilizes two additional CAN interfaces via a separate slot bracket.
The independent CAN networks are driven by the esdACC (esd Advanced CAN Core) implemented in the Xilinx Spartan 3e FPGA. Controlled by the FPGA, the CAN-PCIe/400 supports bus mastering as an initiator, meaning that it is capable of initiating write cycles to the host CPU’s RAM independent of the CPU or the system DMA controller. This results in a reduction of overall latency on servicing I/O transactions in particular at higher data rates and reduced host CPU load. The CAN-PCIe/400 provides high-resolution hardware timestamps and supports CAN Error injection on request.
CAN layer 2 (CAN-API) software drivers are available for Windows, Linux, VxWorks, QNX and RTX supporting up to 24 CAN nets. The CANopen software package is vailable for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX. Drivers for other operating systems are available on request.
The basic product features are:
