Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN

Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN


Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN is a highly-integrated embedded CAN 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. This CAN interface board has a particularly compact footprint, thanks to an M.2 card size of 22 x 80 mm and industry-leading height of just 2 mm. Unique to the Kvaser M.2 PCIe 4xCAN is that the CAN transceivers are distributed (off-board), allowing them to be located closer to the CAN networks themselves. This layout maximises signal quality and integrity. With a time stamp resolution of just 1 ?s and a maximum message rate of 20000 msg/s per channel, plus advanced features such as silent mode, error frame detection and generation, this advanced board with distributed CAN transceivers can be integrated in a wide range of embedded systems.
Major features: - B+M keyed M.2 PCI Express CAN interface with four channels. - Distributed and modular CAN modules minimising the signal integrity impact when connected to CAN-bus systems. - Compact footprint, ideal for embedded applications, thanks to the M.2 card size of 22 x 80 mm. - Supports CAN FD, up to 8 Mbit/s. - Quick and easy plug-and-play installation. - Supports both 11-bit (CAN 2.0A) and 29-bit (CAN 2.0B active) identifiers. - Fully compatible with applications written for other Kvaser CAN hardware with Kvaser CANlib. - High-speed CAN connection (compliant with ISO 11898-2), up to 1 Mbit/s. - Compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000� and DeviceNet. Higher layer protocol translation handled by the user�s application. For software support please see our Technical Associates products and our Software Download page ( - Supports silent mode for analysis tools � listen to the bus without interfering. - Supports simultaneous usage of multiple Kvaser interfaces and SocketCAN.
