New Kvaser white paper discusses ways to maximise CAN’s efficiency in next generation vehicles

By using a Virtual CAN Bus, we separate the control task from other tasks. The distributed embedded control system can be developed using standard CAN Controllers and transceivers in a traditional way with well proven tools.

Other tasks such as encryption, transmitter authentication, re-flashing, etc. can be developed by experts in these fields and carried out by using other protocols. With modern technology, the different tasks can run in parallel and simultaneously communicate on the same physical layer.

It is a great advantage to separate the control problems from other problems. The control problem can be solved once and for all by the control experts and other problems by experts in their respective technology fields.

Introducing the Kvaser Hybrid 2x CAN/LIN



CAN & LIN From a Single Tool

We imagined a tool that would let us break down the communication barriers
between CAN and LIN. Then, we built it.

Introducing the world’s first tool to enable on-the-fly switching for CAN/LIN, CAN/CAN and LIN/LIN busses.


A Tool Designed To Simplify

CAN & LIN in Harmony

An essential tool for automotive engineers, CAN and LIN can now be configured using a single tool. Easy access, from climate control to calibration, using one device.

Unbeatable Performance

This compact, high-performance interface uses a standard USB connector and two high-speed CAN or LIN channels in separate 9-pin D-SUB CAN connectors.

Configuration CAN LIN Hybrid

Configuration Begins Instantly

With Kvaser’s software, configuration can begin as soon as the interface is powered on.

Ultimate lexibility
Ultimate 2-Channel Flexibility

Each channel can be configured for either CAN or LIN, allowing multiple configurations tailored to your needs.
