6-Channel CAN FD Interface for High-Speed USB 2.0


The PCAN-USB X6 is a CAN FD adapter for the USB port which allows the connection of up to 6 CAN FD or CAN busses. The device is therefore best suited for working with multiple CAN networks like the use in test benches with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations for motor vehicles or in the product line testing of CAN-based products.

The PCAN-USB X6 is installed in an aluminum profile casing and is shipped in versions with D-Sub connectors or M12 circular connectors. Especially the M12 version is suitable for use in harsh environments. In addition, a galvanic isolation of up to 300 Volts between the PC and the CAN side is guaranteed for the decoupled versions.

The new CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data rate) is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer. The maximum of 64 data bytes per CAN FD frame (instead of 8 so far) can be transmitted with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. CAN FD is downward-compatible to the CAN 2.0 A/B standard, thus CAN FD nodes can be used in existing CAN networks. However, in this case the CAN FD extensions are not applicable.

The monitor software PCAN-View and the programming interface PCAN-Basic for the development of applications with CAN connection are included in the scope of supply and support the new standard CAN FD.
