This gateway board is a high-performance, low-latency vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with a USB COM port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network.
The board supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.
The strength of the board lies in the fact that the entire SAE J1939 protocol, including all timing requirements, is stored on-chip, thus taking the burden off the main system.
The board supports a USB transfer rate of up to 480 Mbps, allowing high data throughput. Also, the onboard real-time clock supports the timestamping of the SAE J1939 data frames (PGN). Furthermore, the board comes with a MicroSD memory card slot, which opened the door to future applications such as a SAE J1939 data logger.
