Vector’s VN8900 system is the first member of a new family of products based on its XL-Interface family. The device can be used in a wide array of applications, especially those where particular focus is given to simultaneous access of multiple buses and I/O channels, while meeting strict real-time and latency requirements. A high-performance, real-time platform is created when the VN8900 network interface is used in combination with CANoe or CANalyzer. With the VN8900, even older or lower performance PCs (e.g., Netbooks) can be used without negatively affecting the real-time behavior of the system. In addition, the VN8900 supports a new stand-alone operating mode. In this mode, CANoe configurations can be executed in real time without being connected to the user PC.
