Kvaser PCcan HS
The PCcan provides a CAN interface for ISA bus computers that supports 8-bit transfers.
- The board is a quarter-size (length 135 mm) 8-bit
ISA bus board and occupies 64 bytes of I/O space. The base address can be
any of 200H, 240H,
300H, and 340H.
The interrupt signal on the CAN controllers can be connected - under
software control - to any one of IRQ 2/9, IRQ 3, and IRQ 5 on the ISA bus.
- The original 16 MHz oscillator may be replaced with
an oscillator of frequency range 1-24 MHz to obtain the required bit rate
on the bus. The PCcan 4xHS board draws approximately 600 mA at 5V.
- The industry-standard CAN controllers on the PCcan
cards are directly accessible to the programmer. This makes the cards
suitable for cross-platform development: you can develop your software on
your PC and then move it, with a minimum of changes, to your embedded
- The CAN controllers support CAN 2.0 A and 2.0 B
(active.) The CAN bus drivers supports the standard, high-speed ISO11898
- The outputs from the CAN circuits are connected to
female D-SUB connectors via optocouplers and bus drivers
(Philips 82C251, conforming to ISO 11898).
- The connectors provide the voltage feed for the bus
section (optocouplers and driver circuits). Alternatively the PC is used
as power source; however this gives no galvanic separation between the
computer and the CAN bus.
- On the PCcan 4xHS card, it is possible to connect all
the 4 CAN in/outputs to a common CAN bus, which is also connected to the
