The VSCOM USB-CAN is an adapter from USB to CAN. It connects a PC via the USB interface to the CAN bus. Since current computers all have several USB ports, the installation is simple. Even the previous standard of USB 1.1 with 12 Mbits/s max. speed is sufficient to connect the USB-CAN to a computer.
CAN bus is widely used in industrial applications as well as in automotive monitoring and control. The USB-CAN can be used to monitor the data traffic in such installations, as well as sending control information. The performance of USB-CAN is among the best available in the market of CAN-on-USB products.
Since hardware-based automatic flow control is implemented at the interface between the CAN controller and the PC, the data reliability is very high.
The ASCII conversion protocol is useful in developing and testing any configuration. Users just open the serial port via a Terminal Program, and have a simple way to talk to the CAN controller. The same way they can also transmit and receive CAN frames.
Applications programmed by users load the library (DLL), which transparently handles the ASCII conversion. Programmers handle only the CAN frames and status, they do not have to care about the ASCII conversion in their applications.
