Migration Options for USB-8472/73/76 CAN Interface


NI discontinued USB-847x CAN/LIN devices in 2020. This document describes recommended devices to transition the USB-847x CAN/LIN devices to the newer generation of USB-850x NI-XNET CAN/LIN devices.


NI offers a recommended replacement for new and existing applications, the new USB-850x CAN/LIN devices, which feature upgraded hardware capabilities and support from the NI-XNET driver. Migrating existing applications to a new USB-850x requires porting NI-CAN code to NI-XNET. If you have any questions on migrating existing NI-CAN code to NI-XNET for use with a USB-850x, please see Migrating NI-CAN Applications to NI-XNET for more information.
