HMS offers two new versions of PC/CAN interfaces for XMC and PMC within the IXXAT "CAN-IB" plug-in board series, in addition to the well-established versions for PCI, PCIe, PCIe Mini and PCIe 104. The new XMC and PMC cards offer up to four CAN high-speed channels and support the CAN low-speed (fault tolerant) standard. Furthermore, the cards can also be extended with up to two LIN interfaces. This flexibility is made possible by a verified and tested concept consisting of piggyback extensions.As an option, all channels are available with galvanic isolation.
Both the XMC and PMC card feature a powerful 32-bit microcontroller system. This enables intelligent handling and active filtering of the messages being sent and received tothe card – a feature that comes in handy particularly in applications with high demands fordata pre-processing.In addition, the CAN-IB cards are characterized by low latency and maximum reliability – both important points for use in test and measurement systems.
All CAN-IB cards are supported by the IXXAT Windows driver packages (VCI) and by the real-time driver packages (ECI for Linux, RTX, Intime, QNX, VxWorks). HMS also offers a SocketCAN driver for use with existing tools under Linux.Higher layer protocol applications are supported by the IXXAT APIs for CANopen and SAE J1939. For analysis of CAN and LIN networks, HMS offers the IXXAT canAnalyser –a Windows-based analysis tool.
