Kvaser HS CAN

The Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS is a highly integrated CAN (controller area network) add-on board that lets embedded system developers add CAN functionality to any standard computer board with mini PCI Express capability.

  • Supports a bitrate from 40 to 1,000 kbit/s and a CAN transfer rate up to 20,000 messages/s.
  • Time stamp accuracy is 25 μs.
  • Low profile connector complies with the mini PCI Express standard, which connects via a cable to a DSUB (or other
    type) at the computer housing.
  • A 4-pin Molex connector provides single CAN channel access.
  • Complies with EN 61000-6-2:2005, specifying EMC immunity for industrial environments.
  • Operates over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85°C.
  • Kvaser’s free of charge CANLIB SDK can be used to develop software for the Mini PCI Express HS board.
  • Support for Linux, in the form of drivers and a dedicated SDK, are available as a separate download.
