This device driver manages the whole data traffic for all the hardware connected to the PC. The interface to the user or operator of a hardware device, which is connected to a CAN network, is formed by so-called PCAN-Clients. These enable process quantities to be displayed and influenced as necessary. The driver allows multiple clients to be connected and these are able to communicate with CAN busses. It supports various hardware components that are based on NXP’s SJA1000 CAN controller.
PCAN-Developer includes a single user license for the development package and a distribution license for the PCAN-Developer redistributable. This package includes the API DLLs as well as the software products PCAN-View, PCAN-CPL, PCAN-Nets Configuration, and PCAN-Status Display.
For the API and the software you will receive for the duration of two years all updates and free support, from our hotline or the forum for developers working with PCAN-Developer.
The following features apply to PCAN-Client programs, networks, and hardware:
﹁ A Client can be connected to more than one network
﹁ A network supports multiple Clients
﹁ A hardware device belongs to one network only
﹁ A network may have exactly one hardware device assigned to it, or noneat all
﹁ When a Client transmits, the message is passed via hardware to the external bus and to all the other Clients
﹁ If a message is received via the hardware, it is received by all Clients
﹁ Multiple networks may be defined per hardware device
The PCAN-API interface DLL enables software developers to use these features.
The PCAN-Basic API (application programming interface) allows easy development of powerful software with CAN and CAN FD support. It includes all of the functions that an application needs in order to communicate with PCAN PC hardware. The cross-operating-system design makes it possible to easily port software projects between platforms.
PCAN-Basic consists of the actual device driver and an interface DLL, which provides the API functions.
As the successor to PCAN-Light, PCAN-Basic offers increased functionality and extended language support. It provides various functions for developers under C++, C#, C++/CLR, Delphi, VB.NET, Java, and Phyton 2.6.
Beginning with version 4, PCAN-Basic supports the new CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data Rate) which is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer.
PCAN-Basic for Windows® CE
PEAK-System provides the PCAN-Basic API to allow the development of your own CAN applications for Windows® CE 6.x. Programmers can use the languages C++, C# and VB.NET.
PCAN-Basic for Linux
PEAK-System provides the PCAN-Basic API to allow the development of your own CAN applications for Linux.
Programmers can use the languages C++, Java, and Python 2.6.
The CAN FD adapter PCAN-USB FD allows the connection of CAN FD and CAN networks to a computer via USB. A galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts decouples the PC from the CAN bus. The simple handling and its compact plastic casing make the adapter suitable for mobile applications.
The new CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data Rate) is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer. The maximum of 64 data bytes per CAN FD frame (instead of 8 so far) can be transmitted with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. CAN FD is downward-compatible to the CAN 2.0 A/B standard, thus CAN FD nodes can be used in existing CAN networks. However, in this case the CAN FD extensions are not applicable.
ISO / Non-ISO CAN FD:
Since the first implementations of CAN FD, the protocol has been improved and is now included in the standard ISO 11898-1. The revised CAN FD standard is not compatible with the original protocol.
PEAK-System takes this into account by supporting both protocol versions with their CAN FD interfaces. If required, the user can switch to the CAN FD protocol used in the environment by software („Non-ISO“ and „ISO“). Devices delivered until February 2015 need a firmware update for this functionality.
This parallel connection to CAN converter is a sensible alternative to using a PCAN-USB adapter for connecting to a CAN network, especially for older PCs and laptops. Depending on the parallel interface present, it can be operated in "Multiplex" or "Enhanced Parallel Port" mode. Power is supplied to the PCAN-Dongle through a special adapter connected to the PC's keyboard output. The opto-decoupled version also guarantees galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts between the PC and the CAN sides. The package is also supplied with the CAN monitor PCAN-View for Windows® and the programming interface PCAN-Basic.
The PCAN-PCI card enables the connection of a PC with PCI slots to CAN networks. The card is available as a single or dual-channel version. The opto-decoupled versions also guarantee galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts between the PC and the CAN sides. The package is also supplied with the CAN monitor PCAN-View for Windows® and the programming interface PCAN-Basic.
