High Performance for CAN (FD) and LIN

VN1530/VN1531 - the CAN/LIN Bus Connections via PCIe

The CAN/LIN network interfaces VN1530 and VN1531 are 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 VN1530 and VN1531 are optimal interfaces for test benches, test PCs and rack use.


  • 4 onboard channels (VN1530: 4xCAN (FD), VN1531: 4xLIN)
  • 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
