Kvaser Hybrid 2xCAN/LIN

Kvaser Hybrid 2xCAN/LIN is a flexible, dual channel USB interface that allows each channel to be assigned independently as CAN or LIN. This makes the Kvaser Hybrid 2xCAN/LIN a must-have ’universal interface’ for every engineer involved in automotive communications. The CAN FD (both ISO and non-ISO) is also supported.
With a standard USB connector and two CAN/LIN channels in two separate 9-pin D-SUB connectors, this interface can connect a PC to two CAN buses, two LIN buses, or one CAN and one LIN bus.
