Interface Boards Kvaser

Kithara s RealTime suite is more flexible for 25 years – the Swedish company Kvaser, in Germany deals with the origins of CAN – represented by the agostec GmbH & Co.KG, with solutions for the CAN technology. Kvaser provides different types of CAN interfaces and now the real-time environment from Kithara supports a number of cards. Using the RealTime Suite well real-time driver for the Kvaser interfaces are available. This is necessary because the CAN interfaces of the Kvaser GmbH are used primarily in the automotive sector and time-critical requirements under Windows require a real-time extension. The processing of CAN-messages in the Kithara-kernel driver allows safe and responses with equidistant time intervals CAN communication, as well as the fast real-time response to external events. The data will be transported over 2 – or 4-channel interfaces (E.g. the Kvaser PC104 +) and intermediate storage buffers the CAN-messages when sending and receiving of an easy of use and intuitive API. Special real-time message filters make install as well as error-handling routines for specific bus situations.

A list-only mode is possible. The Kithara was the simple diagnosis “kernel tracer”, can be used to cut with the entire CAN traffic in micro seconds resolution. Users appreciate the vendor-independent API that Kithara supports also other cards in the same way in real time. A trial version with full functionality and sample codes can be found on the website
