This extension allows computers with PCI Express slots to be integrated into CAN FD and Classical CAN networks. Two of the four CAN ports can be connected to the two-channel slot bracket included in the scope of supply via flat-ribbon cables. Each channel can transmit data frames with a length of up to 64 byte. The CAN ports are galvanically isolated (up to 500 V), and can be provided with a CAN termination. The CAN FD controller is able to process data incoming with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. Currently, the ISO 11898-2 standard for physical transmission specifies transceiver parameters for up to 5 Mbit/s.

For Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 as well as for Linux operating systems, device drivers are available. The PCAN-View monitoring software and the PCAN-Basic programming interface for the development of applications with CAN connection are included in the scope of delivery and support ISO CAN FD.
