Peak System, distributed by Embedded Logic Solutions , have extended their product range of CAN interfaces for PCs and IPCs with a variant for CompactPCI systems.
The plug-in card, PCAN-cPCI, is intended for computers with CompactPCI backplane and has a 3U form factor.
It contains two or four CAN channels, each being opto-decoupled from the card’s interface circuits. Two CAN channels are hooked-up through D-Sub connectors located on the card’s front blind. The Quad Channel version uses an additional front blind with cables to the PCAN-cPCI card.
The PCAN-cPCI card can be accessed through the uniform PCAN software library, which is available for Windows and Linux. Therefore, any program being PCAN compatible can be run with the PCAN-cPCI card without modification.
