Vector’s CANcardXLe is a bus interface for notebooks with an ExpressCard slot. TWINcabs contain two bus transceivers and operate four independent channel applications, such as two LIN and two CAN channels, on a single CANcardXLe. Advantages include a common time base with precise time stamps at full bus load. Using magnetically decoupled transceivers with low current consumption, the CANcardXLe does not require any external power supply and has the functions needed to develop, simulate, test, and maintain CAN and LIN networks including detecting and generating error frames, measuring bus load, and sending and receiving data frames and remote frames. Transceivers already used with the CANcardXL PCMCIA interface also may be used.
