Kvaser Hybrid Pro 2xCAN/LIN

Part No.: MPKV-Hybrid-Pro-2xCAN-LIN
This is a flexible, dual channel interface that allows each channel to be assigned independently as CAN, CAN FD or LIN.


Kvaser Hybrid Pro 2xCAN/LIN is a flexible, dual channel interface that allows each channel to be assigned independently as CAN, CAN FD or LIN. This makes the Kvaser Hybrid Pro 2xCAN/LIN a must-have ’universal interface’ for every engineer involved in automotive communications!

The Kvaser Hybrid Pro 2xCAN/LIN offers advanced features such as support for CAN FD, Silent Mode, Single Shot, Error Frame Generation and Kvaser MagiSync automatic clock synchronization. As a Pro-level device, this interface can host user-developed programs, created using resources provided within Kvaser’s free CANlib SDK. These can be designed to accomplish a range of advanced tasks, such as CAN node simulation and CAN flashing, or create a LIN to CAN gateway. Guidance and code examples are provided.

Main Features

  • Hybrid USB CAN/LIN two channel interface with two separate 9-pin D-SUBs.
  • t programs allow users to customise the Hybrid Pro 2xCAN/LIN’s behaviour.
  • Supports High Speed CAN (ISO 11898-2) up to 1Mbit/s and LIN 2.2A (ISO 17987 Part 1-7) up to 20 kbit/s.
  • Supports CAN FD (ISO 11898-1) up to 5 Mbit/s (with correct physical layer implementation).
  • Capable of sending up to 20000 messages per second, per CAN channel, time-stamped with a 1 microsecond accuracy.
  • USB powered (bus V+ reference required for LIN).
  • Kvaser MagiSync – automatic time synchronization between MagiSync-enabled Kvaser interfaces connected to the same PC.
  • Single shot function ensures that failed CAN transmissions will not retry.
  • CAN Error Frame Generation and Error Counters.
  • LED lights indicate device status.
  • Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000 and DeviceNet.
  • Supplied with Kvaser CANlib and Kvaser LINlib, free software APIs that are common to all Kvaser hardware and enable the channels to be configured intuitively and fast.
  • Extended operating temperature range from -40 to 85 °C.
  • Support for SocketCAN, see elinux.org for details.


  • Documentation, Kvaser CANlib SDK and drivers can be downloaded for free at www.kvaser.com/downloads.
  • Kvaser CANlib SDK is a free resource that includes everything you need to develop software for the Kvaser CAN and LIN interfaces. Includes full documentation and many program samples, written in C, C++, C#, Delphi, Visual Basic, Python, as well as Kvaser’s t Programming language.
  • All Kvaser CAN interface boards share the common software API, CANlib SDK. Programs written for one interface type will run without modifications on the other interface types.
  • J2534 Application Programming Interface available.
  • RP1210A Application Programming Interface available.
  • HTML-Help and online documentation in Windows and Linux.
