Hardware Support

Vector CAN Interface Support from Vehicle Network Toolbox

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

Vehicle Network Toolbox™ supports Vector CAN and CAN FD interface hardware using the latest version of the Vector device drivers.  You must first download and install the Vector drivers from the Vector website. The table below lists the hardware supported by the latest release of Vehicle Network Toolbox. 

With the Vector 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.

If you do not see your specific hardware device listed below, please click the Request Hardware Support button at the bottom of the page. For detailed information about a board listed here, visit the Vector web site.
