High Performance for CAN and LIN

VN1530 - the CAN/LIN Bus Connection via PCIe

The CAN/LIN network interface VN1530 is ideally suited for accessing CAN and LIN networks via the PCIe interface.

Due to its various channel combinations for the bus connections to CAN(FD), LIN, K-Line and SENT the VN1530 is an optimal interface for test benches, test PCs and rack use.


  • 4 CAN (FD) onboard channels
  • 2 additional, flexibly useable channels via Piggybacks*
  • Advanced LIN stress e.g. for LIN 2.1 conformance tests
  • Synchronization of multiple devices and other bus systems like CAN (FD), LIN, FlexRay, MOST, Ethernet
  • Optimal performance for CANoe, CANalyzer, CANape or customer applications:

    • 100% bus load on all channels supported
    • Minimal latency times
    • Low host CPU load

* Please find a list of compatible Piggybacks on the Vector Homepage:

Application Areas

  • Analysis, simulation and test of ECUs, sensors, actuators and gateways
  • High performance remaining bus simulations
  • Measurement and calibration of ECUs via XCP
  • End of line testing and flashing
  • Precise timing analysis of communication data
  • Setups with a high number of CAN and/or LIN channels
  • Customer-specific applications
