USB-to-CAN Interface connects over USB 2.0 at 480 Mbps.
December 9, 2013 -
Suitable for demanding applications at max bus load and CAN bit rates up to 1 Mbps, USB-to-CAN V2 Interface is available with 1 or 2 CAN interfaces based on ISO 11898-2. In USB-to-CAN V2 compact, CAN connection is implemented as sub-D9 plug or alternatively as RJ45 connector. Versions that carry 2 CAN interfaces are connected via RJ45 connectors. Additional options include galvanically isolated CAN interfaces, bulk variants, and support for ISO 11898-3 low-speed CAN and LIN.

IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 - the Good Just Got Better
HMS brings a reworked version of the extremely successful
USB-to-CAN interface to market under the IXXAT brand.The new IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 interface offers significant advantages for users thanks to a combination of existing and new features. For example, the USB-to-CAN V2 uses powerful hardware and connects over USB 2.0 at 480 MBit/sec. This enables very high data throughput with minimum latency and lower power consumption, which makes the interface suitable for very demanding applications at maximum bus load and CAN bit rates up to 1 Mbit/second, for example simulation applications.
The virtues of the existing USB-to-CAN are still there: outstanding robustness for long-term use in harsh environments, very easy operation at a cost-effective price.
The existing versions of the proven IXXAT VCI and IXXAT ECI drivers support the new USB-to-CAN V2, also permitting drop-in use in existing applications without changes to software – even when changing between different interface types. The IXXAT APIs for CANopen and SAE J1939 also support the new USB-to-CAN V2 device family.
The USB-to-CAN V2 is available in different variants with either one or two CAN interfaces based on ISO 11898-2. In the USB-to-CAN V2 compact, the CAN connection is implemented as a sub-D9 plug or alternatively as an RJ45 connector. The versions that carry two CAN interfaces are connected via RJ45 connectors. Adapter cables to sub-D9 plugs are included with the devices. Additional options include galvanically isolated CAN interfaces, bulk variants, and support for ISO 11898-3 low-speed CAN and LIN.
The new housing design supports creation of customer-specific variants branded with the customer logo.
Another newly introduced variant is the IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 for embedded use, which is designed without housing but with a slot board and adapted USB cable for installation into a computer.
