Interface Series CAN-PCIe/402
January 16, 2020
Our CAN and CAN FD interfaces for the PCI Express bus, for example, meet the highest demands. If needed they can be adapted flexibly to customer requirements as low profile version, with or without electrical isolation, with or without CAN FD, or as a variant with 4x CAN via a DSUB37 connector.
The series includes boards with one, two or four active CAN interfaces 3.3 V1 according to ISO11898-2 and optionally with or without electrical isolation. Their transfer rates range from 10 kbps to 1 Mbps.
All CAN boards of this series use the IP-CAN controller esdACC (esdAdvanced CAN Controller) implemented in the Altera FPGA. In this way the maximum bit rate can be achieved on all channels at the same time. The Single Lane PCIe interface is designed according to PCI Express r1.0a specification.

FREE CAN Network Monitoring Software
June 3, 2008
The monitoring of Controller Area Network (CAN) data traffic can be an expensive adventure, but it doesn’t have to be. There
are high-end software packages whose prices are definitely justified for engineers who are in need of all possible features to analyze and diagnose CAN
messages in every detail. However, the vast majority of engineers involved with CAN development would be satisfied with a monitoring tool to display and even
record and replay CAN messages on the screen. esd elelectronics, Inc provides such a tool for their CAN hardware interfaces as integral part of their
driver plus software development package that is free of cost.
Ethernet Gateway Extends the Reach of CAN Applications
June 03, 2008
The bus length extension per CAN repeaters is a myth that is unfortunately being maintained by some manufacturers
and vendors. CAN repeaters can be used to boost the signal strength and maintain standard bus lengths, but
not extend them. Ironically, one of the ingenious features of CAN, the bit monitoring, contributes not only to the enormous reliability of Controller Area
Network, but also to its biggest drawback, the limited physical distance of the CAN bus. Restricted physical distance is definitely an issue especially for
applications such as elevators, security systems and other building technologies.
The ultimate way to extend the reach of a CAN application is the use of Ethernet gateways, which consequently even allow the connection to the Internet. For instance, the
EtherCAN device by esd electronics, Inc. provides operation modes to either connect two separate CAN networks per Ethernet or allow the monitoring of network activities
through the Internet.
With support of the EtherCAN's internal web server you can have your application run in Australia while you monitor and analyze the bus traffic in your office in
Chicago. The EtherCAN comes with an extensive PC software package with CAN analyzing and monitoring features.
