Kvaser CAN Interface Support from Vehicle Network Toolbox

Use Kvaser CAN devices to stream CAN bus data into MATLAB and Simulink.

Vehicle Network Toolbox™ supports Kvaser CAN interface hardware using the latest version of the Kvaser CANLib driver library. The table below lists the hardware supported by the latest release of Vehicle Network Toolbox.

With the Kvaser 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.

The support package downloadable from this page is for Windows onl. Kvaser hardware can also be used from MATLAB on Linux platform.  To use Kvaser hardware on Linux platform, you must install the Linux drivers manually from the Kvaser web site.
