Features and benefits

  • Active board with 32 bit microcontroller
  • Up to four CAN channels (High-/Low-Speed optional switchable)
  • Available as standard and low-profile version
  • LIN optional
  • Galvanic isolation
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type

With its powerful 32 bit microcontroller system the CAN-IB230/PCIe 104 fulfills even high requirements in data pre-processing, like intelligent data handling and active filtering of the received and transmitted messages.

The CAN-IB230/PCIe 104 is available with up to four CAN channels and galvanic isolated interfaces. For use in the automotive field one high-speed CAN channel can optionally be switched to low-speed CAN via software. Furthermore, the card can be equipped with one LIN interface.


For the connection to the PC, Ixxat delivers the card with its proven Windows and ECI-driver for Linux, QNX, INtime and VxWorks. The driver supports all interfaces on the card and allows their usage both with customer specific programs or with the analysis and configuration tools from Ixxat. For Windows optional protocol API's are available to support CANopen or J1939.
The VCI driver also supports all other PC interfaces offered by Ixxat, which enables the user to easily switch the type of interface without any adaptation of the customer application.
