Automotive Ethernet USB Interface


We newly offer the 100BASET-T1 USB Interface that connects an Automotive Ethernet network (IEEE 100BASE-T1 / BroadR-Reach) to a computer over USB. The adapter acts as an USB-LAN network card and easily connects a 100BASE-T1 device or network to any computer with an USB port, which comes in useful in cases when the computer does not have an on-board Ethernet network card.

Wireless CAN bus


Wireless CAN bus network can be realized by two Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS interfaces. The Air Bridge creates a gateway between a classical wired CAN bus and a wireless network with the help of a prorietary protocol with low jitter and a high noise immunity. The interface is plug’n’play and automatically detects the baud rate of a network.

SAE J2716 to RS-232/CAN Bus Interface


SENT to CAN and RS-232 Gateway/Interface for SAE J2716 (SENT protocol – Single Edge Nibble Transmission). The converter offers two bi-directional SENT channels, two analogue outputs, and either a CAN bus or RS-232. The channel parameters are configurable, and both Fast and Slow frames are supported (Fast, Short Serial, Enhanced Serial messages). A PC application for channel configuration, reception and transmission of SENT messages is available for free. A binary protocol can be used to integrate the interface into an existing system allowing the device to act as a SENT communication tester and a simulator.
