Ixxat USB to CAN FD PC interface

Cost-effective CAN FD adapter and PCinterface family for USB

The IXXAT USB-to-CAN FD has – depending on the device variant – up to two channels, which support three switchable operation modes: ISO CAN FD, non ISO CAN FD and CAN High-Speed. The automotive variant provides also one LIN channel.
Thus, these variants addresses a wide range of applications, both in industrial and automotive sectors.

By using powerful hardware and connecting over USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480 MBit/sec), these interfaces achieve very high data throughput with minimum latency and low power consumption. This allows them to provide the reliable, loss-free transmission and receipt of messages in CAN-FD and CAN networks at high transmission rates and bus load.
The messages are also timestamped and can be filtered and buffered directly in the USB-to-CAN FD.

Features and benefits

  • CAN, CAN FD and LIN in one device
  • Cost-effective and extremely versatile
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
  • For industrial and automotive applications
  • Galvanic isolation

The USB-to-CAN FD is available in different variants.
