PEAK-System CAN Interface Support from Vehicle Network Toolbox

Use PEAK-System CAN devices to stream CAN bus data into MATLAB and Simulink.

Vehicle Network Toolbox™ supports PEAK-System CAN interface hardware using the latest version of the PCAN basic library. The table below lists the hardware supported by the latest release of Vehicle Network Toolbox.

With PEAK-System CAN interface support, you can perform the following tasks in MATLAB® or Simulink®:

  • Transmit and receive CAN and XCP messages
  • Pack and unpack CAN messages for simplified decoding and encoding
  • Filter, log, and replay CAN messages
  • Use .dbc database and A2L description files
  • Find and display CAN interface device settings

In MATLAB and Simulink, you can transmit and receive CAN messages using the CAN FD standard if the CAN interface hardware supports CAN FD. Vehicle Network Toolbox supports PEAK-System CAN interface hardware on Windows and Linux platforms.
