CAN FD Interface for M.2 (PCIe)

With the PCAN-M.2, PEAK-System is the first manufacturer to use the M.2 PCIe interface for the connection of CAN and CAN FD networks. Unique feature: the PCAN-M.2 achieves a transmission rate of up to 12 Mbit/s for the maximum 64 data bytes of a CAN FD frame.

  • CAN interface for the M.2 slot (uses PCIe lane)
  • 1 or 2 High-speed CAN channels (ISO 11898-2)
  • Form factor M.2 type: 2280/2260-B-M; height 4.6 mm
  • Complies with CAN specifications 2.0 A/B and FD
  • CAN FD support for ISO and Non-ISO standards switchable
  • CAN FD bit rates for the data field (64 bytes max.) from 15 kbit/s up to 12 Mbit/s
  • CAN bit rates from 15 kbit/s up to 1 Mbit/s
  • CAN bus connection via connection cable and D-Sub, 9-pin (in accordance with CiA® 303-1)
  • FPGA implementation of the CAN FD controller
  • MCP2558FD CAN transceiver
