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.
The Kvaser U100 is a robust, single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interface with reinforced galvanic isolation that squarely addresses the needs of the evolving automotive development market. Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet, this is the first in a new range of interfaces that is also suited to rugged applications in marine, industrial, heavy duty vehicle and heavy industries.
With enhanced protection of its own electrical circuits, a vibration, shock and drop-proof housing and high-quality cabling, the Kvaser U100 establishes a new reference in CAN interface design. At the same time, the U100 promises to drive down cost of ownership, whilst providing additional revenue opportunities for partners.
â€‹Supports CAN FD, up to 8 Mbit/s (with correct physical layer implementation).
Supports both 11-bit (CAN 2.0A) and 29-bit (CAN 2.0B active) identifiers.
Powered through the USB connector.
Supports bit rates from 10 Kbit/sec up to 1 Mbit/sec.
Lightweight, glass fibre reinforced polyamide housing, overmolded with TPE.
DB-9 connector (other connectors available soon).
Intelligent LED UI.
Reinforced galvanic isolation, design validated with 5000 VAC rms applied for 60 seconds.
Industrial grade temperature range, −40 °C to 85 °C.
20000 msg/s, each timestamped with a resolution of 100 μs.
Support for SocketCAN.
Compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet.
Fully compatible with applications written for other Kvaser CAN hardware with Kvaser CANlib.
Documentation, software and drivers can be downloaded for free at www.kvaser.com/downloads.
Kvaser CANLIB SDK is a free resource that includes everything you need to develop software for the Kvaser CAN interfaces. Includes full documentation and many program samples, written in C, C , C#, Delphi, and Visual Basic.
All Kvaser CAN interface boards share a common software API. Programs written for one interface type will run without modifications on the other interface types!
Windows drivers for all our CAN hardware. Please check the release notes for information on which Windows versions are supported. The package also contains a driver for a virtual CAN bus, for testing and evaluation when you don't have access to a physical CAN bus.
Software development kit - everything you need to develop software for the Kvaser CAN and LIN interfaces. Libraries, header files, sample programs for e.g. C, C , C#, Visual Basic and Delphi, documentation, and more. Note: you need to download and install the appropriate device drivers separately.
