Mini PCI Express Real-Time Interface For CAN Bus Or CAN FD

Posted by Industry News on

Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS v2

Kvaser announced their Mini PCI Express HS v2, a single-channel and a dual-channel Mini PCI Express interface boards with low latency designed for real-time environments. The two single- and dual-channel interfaces communicate with the PC over the PCI Express system bus, allowing for real-time performance and 1 µs time-stamping. They support both Classical CAN and CAN FD and measure 30 mm x 51 mm.

The Mini PCI Express HS v2 version provides a real-time CAN Bus interface that adds one high-speed Classical CAN or CAN FD channel to any standard computer with mini PCI Express capability while the version Mini PCI Express 2xHS v2 adds two high speed CAN or CAN FD channels. PC communication is over the PCI Express system bus, making for low latency with a time stamp accuracy of 1 µs.

Kvaser's previous products, the Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS and Kvaser Mini PCI Express 2xHS, will remain available for sale, the primary difference being that these versions use a USB port for communication with the PC.

Key Features
