Part No.: MPVT-VN1600
The VN1600 interface family provides a flexible and fast access to CAN (FD) and LIN networks.


VN1600 - Network Interfaces with USB for CAN FD, LIN, K-Line, J1708 and IO

The VN1600 interface family provides a flexible and fast access to CAN (FD) and LIN networks.

While the VN1610/VN1611 with 2 channels focuses on minimum size and weight, the VN1630A/VN1640A with 4 channels is designed for flexibility and IO support.

The VN1630 log provides additional recording functionality.


  • Bus transceiver with proven CAN/LIN/J1708-Piggies*

  • Power supplied via USB, also in 4-channel applications

  • Optimal performance for CANoe*, CANalyzer*, CANape* or customer applications, with Multi- Application support

  • Support of CAN FD up to 8 Mbit/s

  • Advanced LIN stress e.g. for LIN 2.1 conformance tests (VN1630A/VN1640A)

  • Synchronized channels with minimal latency times

  • K-Line support *

  • CAPL on Board for CAN, LIN, IO (1630A/VN1640A)

  • Fast CAN flashing by a hardware-based flash routine implementation

  • Customer applications can be linked with the proven XL Driver Library

  • LEDs for displaying channel activity and device status (VN1630A/VN1630 log/VN1640A)

  • Easy configuration of the recording functionality with the Vector Logger Configurator when using VN1630 log

* Ask Vector about required software versions and supported transceiver piggies


Overview about the VN1600 Interface Family

Application Areas

VN1600 devices provide the best bus interface for Vector tools such as CANoe, CANalyzer, CANape, Indigo, vFlash as well as customer applications; in the laboratory, at the test bench, at the service garage or in the vehicle.

The application areas range from simple bus analysis to complex remaining bus simulations, diagnostic, calibration and flash programming tasks.

The  product’s multi-application support makes it possible to access multiple programs in parallel on one device and on the same channel.

The VN1630 log provides additional recording functionality for CAN (FD) and LIN.


  • Flexible FPGA-based CAN and LIN implementation allows 100% bus load on all channels

  • Performing LIN 2.1 conformance tests with CANoe (VN1630A/VN1640A)

  • Fast baudrates: CAN (max.  2 Mbit/s), CAN FD (max. 8 Mbit/s) and LIN (max. 330 kbit/s)

  • The integrated IO functionality of the VN1630A/VN1640A makes it possible to synchronously acquire signals along with CAN/LIN messages and switch loads up to 500 mA via a digital output

  • For weight and space savings, the VN1610/VN1611/VN1630A/VN1630 log have integrated CAN High-Speed transceiver(s). The standard D-SUB9 connector supports dual channels

  • Recording functionality for monitoring vehicle communication (CAN (FD), LIN) with VN1630 log. Data is stored on an SD/SDHC card (up to 32 GB)
