The end of life of the DCI-CAN1 is planned for December 2020. As of this date, no services of any kind will be available for this product. We advise against using the DCI-CAN1 in new projects. You can still buy the product until December 2017. New releases of dSPACE software are guaranteed to continue supporting the DCI-CAN1 until at least the end of 2019.

For new projects we recommend that you use the successor, dSPACE DCI-CAN2.
DCI-CAN2 is supported by dSPACE Releases since 2015-B.
The DCI-CAN2 is more than just a suitable replacement. With the DCI-CAN2 you can access the data stream not only on CAN networks, but also on CAN FD networks. The interface transfers messages between the CAN/CAN FD network and the host PC via the universal serial bus (USB). Compared with the classic CAN protocol, CAN FD (FD = Flexible Data Rate) comes with increased data rates and payload data length. With CAN FD, a multiplied data rate allows an average data transmission speed of several Mbit/s and payload lengths of up to 64 bytes (compared to 8 bytes in a classic CAN).
If you have any questions or need further information, your contact in the dSPACE sales team will be glad to help.
Dedicated migration information would be published here.
