Bedford , NH— Ixxat Inc. recently added USB-to-CAN II, an industrial version of its USB-to-CAN Compact, to its PC-to-CAN interface products. The company already offers PC-to-CAN interfaces for PCI, ISA, PC-104, USB, PCMCIA and FlexRay bus standards in high-volume production. USB-to-CAN II features two CAN channels and one LIN channel in an industrial metal housing for connecting to a PC via a USB port.

Coupled with Ixxat’s universal CAN driver, VCI 2.16, and its canAnalyzer V2 software development tools, USB-to-CAN II offers a powerful and comprehensive solution for analysis, development and servicing of CAN and LIN networks, according to Ixxat. USB-to-CAN II uses 16-bit microcontroller system for transmitting and receiving loss-free messages, even in high-transmission-rate and bus-load environments.

Ixxat's PC-to-CAN interfaces enable PC users to access CAN networks with a variety of passive and intelligent PC interface products based on popular standards and a universal CAN Driver, called VCI 2.16. By supporting many PC interface standards and offering several different CAN boards for each, Ixxat allows users to select an optimum PC-to-CAN interface for applications' performance requirements or specified unit costs.

Ixxat manufactures industrial and automotive communications and supplies high-volume PC-to-CAN interface products worldwide for automotive, transportation, industrial, medical devices and building automation systems. In addition to its PC-to-CAN interface products, Ixxat supplies software protocols for CAN based systems such as CANopen, DeviceNet and J1939, as well as Ethernet Powerlink, Ethernet/IP, FlexRay, Embedded TCP/IP and LIN. Ixxat also produces bridges and gateways, such as Ethernet-to-CAN, CAN-to-RS-232 and LIN-to-CAN, and offers PC-based software development tools and services.
