IO614: CAN I/O Module

Active CAN module with 4 isolated CAN channels, software selectable HIGH/LOW speed and LIN

The IO614 I/O module is an active CAN-Bus module with up to four CAN galvanic isolated ports, supporting CAN 2.0A/B messages and covering 2/4 x HIGH speed, 1x LOW speed / fault tolerant and 1x LIN communication. Driver blocks for Simulink Real-Time are included.


It also supports the following protocols:


  • Four galvanically isolated CAN ports
  • CAN 2.0A (11-bit identifier) and CAN 2.0B (29-bit identifier) messages
  • Software selectable HIGH (ISO 11898-2) and LOW (ISO 11898-3) speed modes on CAN port 1
  • Additional LIN interface (ISO 9141) on CAN port 2
  • On-board microcontroller manages the low-level flow of CAN messages
  • 'Lean' on-board CAN firmware leads to minimal receive and transmit driver block latencies
  • Extensive Simulink Real-Time driver blockset offers a comprehensive set-up block and various receive and transmit blocks supporting FIFO mode and object modes
  • Easy firmware updates: the Setup driver block downloads microcontroller firmware each time a target application is initialized

MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) - MTBF values shown are based on calculation according to MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2; Environment: GB 20°C. The MTBF calculation is based on component FIT rates provided by the component suppliers. If FIT rates are not available, MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 formulas are used for the FIT rate calculation.
