A 5-channel CAN-USB interface with CAN FD support

02.11.2015

Kvaser USBcan Pro 5xHS, Kvaser’s new five channel high-speed controller area network (CAN) to USB interface, allows users to monitor data from multiple CAN / CAN FD channels using just one device, with high time stamp precision.

A new firmware update supports both CAN 2.0B and CAN FD (CAN with Flexible Data-Rate) protocols.

The Kvaser USBcan Pro 5xHS has a 26 pin HD DSUB that connects to a splitter with five 9 pin DSUBs, and one USB connector that easily links to any USB port on a host computer.

This interface can run user-developed scripts, written in the Kvaser t programming language. T programs run directly on the Kvaser USBcan Pro 5xHS make it possible to react much quicker to CAN bus events – for example, to speed up file transfer protocols such as CCP/XCP or ISO15765 by off-loading timing sensitive code to a script in USBcan Pro 5xHS, or to simulate missing hardware. The feature could also be used for implementing timing sensitive protocols, such as when a message needs to be sent at precise 5 ms intervals.
