PCI/104- Express boards are designed for CAN and LIN
IXXAT completed its PCI-Express Series, consisting of several PCI-Express boards and a PCI-Express-Mini card, with two new variants based on the PCI/104-Express standard. The new boards are designed specifically for use in compact industrial computers and mobile systems. Like the other boards, the new PCI/104-Express variants are based on a highly modular architectural concept. In addition to a passive version for cost-sensitive applications, an active version with a powerful 32 bit microcontroller is offered. The active version is specially designed for use in applications with high demands for data preprocessing. Depending on the version, the PCI/104-Express boards are available with up to four CAN interfaces as well as with an optional switchable high-/low speed CAN interface and LIN interface. All interfaces are galvanic isolated by default. In accordance with the requirements for industrial and mobile applications, the boards have an extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
