    2-Port , PCI, LIN Interface Device

    • 2-port high-speed LIN interface (20 kbit/s per port) with onboard ATA6620 transceivers
    • NI-XNET driver for developing frame and signal applications in LabVIEW, LabWindows™/CVI, and C/C++
    • NI-XNET device-driven DMA engine couples the LIN bus to host memory to minimize message latency
    • Integrated support for importing and using signals from LDF databases
    • Master and slave support; hardware-timed scheduling for master tasks
    • Bundled software: NI-XNET driver, Bus Monitor and Database Editor for Windows, LabVIEW Real-Time OSs

    The PCI-8516 is a 2-port, local interconnect network (LIN) PCI interface for developing LIN applications in NI LabVIEW, NI LabWindows/CVI, and C/C++ on Windows and LabVIEW Real-Time operating systems. As part of the NI-XNET platform, the PCI-8516 works well for applications that require real-time, high-speed manipulation of many LIN frames and signals, such as hardware-in-the-loop simulation, rapid control prototyping, bus monitoring, and automation control.
