Six-channel interface accesses CAN/LIN over PCIe

Multiple channel options for interfacing to CAN (FD), LIN, K-Line and SENT buses for PCIe satisfy the need for more channels at test benches, test PCs and racks.

The VN1530 is a six-channel network interface for accessing networks, such as the controller area network (CAN) and local interconnect network (LIN) over the PCIe interface. The interface satisfies the growing need for more channels, especially at test benches, test PCs and in rack use.

The VN1530 has all the functions you need for analysis, simulation and testing of electronic control units (ECUs), sensors and gateways. These functions enable comprehensive remaining bus simulations, precise measurement of communication data, end-of-line tests and flashing. A transport protocol accelerator is also available for CAN. Developers can use the VN1530 for running extended LIN stress tests, e.g. LIN 2.1 conformance tests.

For users of multiple devices, the VN1530 allows synchronisation of multiple devices and different bus systems such as CAN (FD), LIN, FlexRay, MOST and Ethernet. XL driver libraries also support proprietary customer applications. In the process, users benefit from the product’s support of 100 per cent bus load on all channels, minimal latency times and low CPU utilisation of the host
