Kvaser has released two Mini PCI Express CAN interface cards with CAN FD support. Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS v2 is a single-channel CAN/CAN FD card Kvaser Mini PCI Express 2xHS v2 is a dual-channel CAN/CAN FD card Both interfaces are Mini PCI Type F2 form factor with small footprint (30 x 51mm) and support […]
100BASE-T1 is the Automotive Ethernet, also known as BroadR-Reach (OABR). We offer a bi-directional 100BASE-T1 Media Converter with a 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet) port. The interface enables the user to easily connect 100BASE-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw) devices, such as cameras, ECUs, and ADAS components, to a standard computer network.
We have finished an automation of a semi-automatic assembly line of steering wheel levers. Our task was to wire a cabinet and lay cables within the machine and also to develop a control software. The machine uses a Beckhoff PLC which controls FESTO servo controllers over an EtherCAT network and communicates with FESTO camera, too. […]
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.
LIN-RS232 and LIN-CAN are communication converters (gateways) between the LIN bus and RS-232 / CAN bus respectively. The gateway can be used to connect a LIN test station to the PLC of the assembly line. Source code examples can be provided so that the user can develop his own application for the device and flash the firmware it into the device over a bootloader.
The board for physical layer fault injection. With the help of swiches and potentiometers, the user can manually simulate faults into a differential bus. Many types of error can be injected: a missing termination, shorted differential pair (CAN_L, CAN_H), signal wires shorted to Gnd or Vdd, open Gnd or Vdd wires.
Kvaser Hybrid 2xCAN/LIN is an universal USB interface with two CAN/LIN channels. Each channel get configured as CAN (including CAN FD support) or LIN by software. This provides the user a great flexibility in using the interface in different scenarios. Channels are independent and each one has a galvanic isolation.
We have been developing a mobile tracking device for Internet-of-Things. The device collects GNSS position based on GPS/Glonass/BeiDou and uploads it onto the server. It also features several operating modes so that the consumption is as low as possible. Both size and weight has also been optimized.
We developed a Battery Management System (BMS) module for voltage and temperature monitoring of battery cells. The module is based upon a STM32F4 microcontroller and communicates with other ECUs over the CAN bus and also over the DC-LIN (ISO 17987, DC-BUS), which is a new LIN bus physical layer.
