The Kvaser Mini PCI Express 2xHS v2 is a small (30×51mm), yet advanced, real time CAN interface that adds one high speed CAN or CAN FD channel to any standard computer with mini PCI Express capability. PC communication is over the PCI Express system bus, making for extremely low latency with a time stamp accuracy of 1 µs.

Major Features

  • Fully compliant to the PCIe bus specification 1.2, Type F2 form factor (Full-Mini with bottom-side keep outs)
  • High-speed CAN connection (compliant with ISO 11898-2), supporting a bit rate from 50 to 1000 kbit/s for Classical CAN and up to 8Mbit/s for CAN FD
  • High transmission rate of up to 20000 messages/s on each channel
  • Time stamp accuracy of 1 µs
  • Galvanic isolation
  • Suitable for industrial environments
  • Low profile mini PCI Express-compliant 7-pin Molex connector provides CAN channel access
  • Includes Molex to DSUB9 cable adapter
  • Complies with EN 61000-6-2:2005, specifying EMC immunity for industrial environments
  • Operates over the industrial temperature range of −40 to +85°C
  • Kvaser’s free of charge CANLIB SDK can be used to develop software for the Mini PCI Express HS board. Windows DLL library and examples included.
  • Supports Windows Vista or later
  • Linux drivers and a dedicated SDK are available as a separate download
  • Support for SocketCAN, see for details
  • Note: Kvaser’s already-existing Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS and Kvaser Mini PCI Express 2xHS products will remain available for sale. The primary difference is that these previous versions utilize the USB system bus for communication with the PC.
  • Documentation, Kvaser CANlib SDK and drivers can be downloaded for free at
  • Kvaser CANLIB SDK is a free resource that includes everything you need to develop software for the Kvaser CAN interfaces. Includes full documentation and many program samples, written in C, C++, C#, Delphi, Visual Basic, Python and t Script
