The VN1600 family of USB interface modules connects CAN networks to USB. It has been developed especially for the company’s PC-based software tools. The products are prepared for CAN FD communication with higher data-rates than 1 Mbit/s.
THE VN1600 FAMILY PROVIDES INTERFACES to all automotive network technologies including CAN high-speed (ISO 11898-2) and CAN fault-tolerant (ISO 11898-3). The products are based on a reconfigurable FPGA hardware. Equipped with up to four CAN interfaces they can be used with CANoe, CANalyzer and CANape software tools running on a PC. The local 400-MHz CPU is able to handle even higher transmission rates without losing messages.
This includes the support of the CAN FD support, which requires just a reconfiguration of the FPGA. The interface modules are suited for a temperature range from -40 °C to +70 °C with power supply via USB.
The product line succeeds the USB CANcaseXL interface family. While the VN1610/VN1611 with 2 channels focuses on minimum size and weight, the VN1630/VN1640 with 4 channels is designed for flexibility and I/O support.
