The Series 61 comprises Ethernet, PCI, PXI, and USB interface variants for the connection to the host controller. Additionally, one model can be integrated directly into the Magiccar compact automotive test system. In the past, the G-API (Goepel application programming interface) supported only Windows-based systems. Now the products can run also under Linux (Opensuse Leap 42.2); other Linux versions are supported on request. The company also offers a Labview driver library.

The interface modules based on a PowerPC microprocessor are available for different in-vehicle networks including Classical CAN and CAN FD. In maximum, there are four CAN ports. The CAN transceiver chips are exchangeable. The boards feature a 512-MiB RAM and a 256-MiB flash memory.
