Ixxat USB to CAN V2 Overview

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 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 V2.

Features and benefits

  • Cost-effective and extremely versatile
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
  • For industrial and automotive applications
  • Galvanic isolation optional
