Bus Interfaces for CAN and AFDX®/Ethernet

Software tools used to develop, simulate, test and maintain distributed systems require powerful and flexible hardware interfaces and logging solutions.

Vector offers you interfaces for CAN and AFDX®/Ethernet as well as driver software and programming interfaces for use with Vector software tools and in customer-specific solutions.

Bus System Interface PC Connection
Highlights and functions ...
  • Higher data throughput (up to 80,000 messages per second)
  • Precise time stamps
  • Highly flexible with large selection of interchangeable bus transceivers
  • Message preprocessing on the card reduces PC loading
  • No data losses, even with 1 Mbit burst loading
  • FPGA update possible
  • Time synchronization with other Vector interfaces is possible via external connection (party line)
  • ExpressCard interface CANcardXLe and TWINcabs make up to 4 channels available
  • The VN8900 interface is a high-performance real-time platform when used in combination with the CANoe or CANalyzer tool. Its many uses range from MiniHIL applications to system simulations with Simulink, rest-of-bus simulations as well as gateway implementations and test runs.
Special CAN functions:
  • Detect and generate error frames
  • Precisely measure bus load
  • Listen on the CAN bus without affecting it (Silent Mode)
  • Send and receive data and remote frames

AFDX®/Ethernet and CAN:
Highlights and functions ...
  • Two independent Ethernet channels; for standard Ethernet (100Mbit/1000Mbit) or BroadR-Reach (100Mbit)
  • Two CAN highspeed channels
  • Precise time stamps as well as synchronization between multiple devices and other bus systems
  • Ethernet monitoring
  • High flexibility by reconfigurable FPGA hardware architecture. Prepared and ready for CAN FD.

ARINC 429 (Avionic Systems):
Highlights and advantages...
  • 4 ARINC 429 TX and 4 ARINC 429 RX channels
  • Supports High-Speed and Low-Speed communication
  • Host interface via USB 2.0
  • Does not require any external power supply
  • Precise time stamps
  • Synchronization with multiple devices and other bus systems (e.g. CAN, Ethernet, AFDX®)
  • Analog/digital IO
