CANnect CAN FD extension module

High performance gateway CANnect extension module for CAN FD

The CANnect CAN FD extension module enhances the base module by adding high performance access to CAN FD networks. The main features are the four CAN FD interfaces that support current standard ISO 11898. The extension module is based on modern, high capacity state-of-the-art FPGA technology. It supports the whole range of functions offered by the intuitive configuration software, well-known from the CANnect base module.
