Whether calibrating automotive electronic control units (ECUs), building custom USB controller area network (CAN) diagnostic applications, logging data from vehicle networks, or performing hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, National Instruments CAN hardware and software tools make developing custom CAN applications easy. NI offers CAN interfaces for USB, PCI, PXI, PCMCIA, and NI CompactRIO with a selection of toolkits and APIs to meet all application needs. The NI CAN platform is ideal for developing and deploying multiple CAN applications in an organization where off-the-shelf tools could cost thousands more per seat.

NI CAN interfaces feature the flexible and industry-proven NI-CAN driver software with a low-level powerful frame API and an easy-to-use, high-level channel API. The NI-CAN driver has native support for NI LabVIEW, NI LabWindows™/CVI, and ANSI C/C++. CAN utilities, including channel test panels, a bus monitor/logger, and a database editor, come with every interface for no additional cost. With tight integration with LabVIEW software and NI hardware, CAN applications that combine functionality from other NI products such as data acquisition and modular instrumentation are easy to build. Most NI CAN interfaces feature hardware synchronization, which helps users synchronize data across multiple embedded networks and analog data, and take other measurements such as microsecond correlation to CAN frames.
