PXI Vehicle Multiprotocol Interface Module


Provides a hardware-selectable controller area network (CAN) and/or local interconnect network (LIN) interface for developing applications with the NI-XNET driver on PXI.

PXI Vehicle Multiprotocol Interface Modules use hardware-selectable NI-XNET Transceiver Cables (TRC) to communicate High-Speed/Flexible Data‑rate CAN, Low-Speed/Fault Tolerant CAN, and/or LIN. Using the NI-XNET driver, you can create applications that require real-time, high-speed manipulation of hundreds of CAN and/or LIN frames and signals. The NI-XNET device-driven DMA engine enables the onboard processor to move frames and signals between the interface and the user program without CPU interrupts, minimizing message latency and freeing host processor time. PXI Vehicle Multiprotocol Interface Modules work well in applications such as hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, rapid control prototyping, bus monitoring, and automation control.
