DS6301 CAN/LIN Board

By supporting CAN and LIN networks on one board, the DS6301 is tailored to typical applications for automotive projects.  

Application Areas

The DS6301 CAN/LIN Board is the interface between a dSPACE SCALEXIO system and CAN, CAN FD and LIN bus systems. It has eight channels, four of which are dedicated for CAN/CAN FD communication and the other four for LIN communication. All features and settings of this board can be configured with the dSPACE software ConfigurationDesk.

Key Benefits

With its support of CAN and LIN networks, the DS6301 is tailored to typical applications for automotive projects. With 8 channels per board, it offers a high channel density. Its integrated FPGA provides high flexibility and low I/O response times.
