PCI Express Board Integrates Four High-Speed CAN/CAN FD Ports

Posted by Industry News on

Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN

Kvaser has introduced their compact M.2 PCIe, a highly integrated embedded CAN Bus board that adds four high-speed CAN/CAN FD channels to any host computer with PCI Express connectivity and an available B or M keyed M.2 slot.

The embedded board provides four distributed CAN CC (Classic CAN) or CAN FD transceivers, adding CAN CC and CAN FD to any host computer with a PCI Express connector. The board has a compact footprint due to an M.2 card size of 22 x 80 mm and a height of only 2 mm. Unique to the Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN is that the CAN transceivers are off board, allowing them to reside closer to the CAN network. This layout maximizes the signal speed and integrity, making it suitable for CAN FD since CAN FD supports data phase bit rates up to 8 Mbit/s.

Each CAN module connects to the M.2 card using a 30-cm long PCB-to-PCB cabling. The distributed CAN layout is specifically suited for embedded systems with enclosures. Each CAN channel is galvanically isolated. The board’s operating temperature is within the standard industrial range of -40 °C to +85 °C. With a timestamp resolution of 1 μs and a maximum message rate of 20000 frames/s per channel, plus features such as silent mode, error frame detection and generation, the board supports a wide range of embedded systems. Examples include motor control for mobile robotics, automated driving simulation black boxes, CAN Bus data acquisition in medical automation, fleet management, industrial system monitoring, and more.

Kvaser’s free-of-charge CANlib SDK (software development kit) supports the development of user application software. CANlib, which supports Windows and Linux, allows the development of applications that are fully compatible with present and future Kvaser hardware. Kvaser offers M2M communication solutions that provide innovative and trusted CAN interfaces to engineers designing and deploying systems in transportation, industrial automation, avionics, construction equipment, building automation, domestic appliances, marine, medical, military, railway, and telecoms. The company also supplies design services for OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and ODM (original design manufacturer) customers.
