ARINC 825 CANflight Size Comparison

The CANflight is a small and low cost Dual Channel ARINC 825 Bus Analyzer and Traffic Generator suitable for Engineering Development, Test, and in field use with Laptops for Data Loading, Flight Test, Maintenance, and other tasks on CAN, ARINC 825, and CANaerospace equipped vehicles.

ARINC 825 CANflight Bus Analyzer Dongle Rear

Uses Dual DB-9 Male Connectors for ease in wiring ARINC 825 / CAN busses. IRIG-B timing input also shown on SMA. SMA to BCN adapter available.

The adapter is a Controller Area Network (ISO 11898), ARINC 825 and CANaerospace Protocol Compliant Interface with a 1000/100/10 BaseT Ethernet interface for communication with the connected equipment. Because each CANflight adapter communicates over Ethernet with it’s host, Multiple CANflight adapters may be connected using a simple Ethernet switch if more channels are desired on one platform. CANflight includes the powerful eXtended CAN Tool (XCT) software for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

Each CANflight Adapter is a small handheld, USB powered, intelligent adapter that is powered from either a USB port or from a 9-36VDC Aircraft or Automotive power source. The adapter provides two electrically isolated fully independent CAN 2.0B Interfaces and is implemented in a Xilinx FPGA and contains two internal CPUs. The CAN 2.0B interfaces are implemented with licensed Bosch C_CAN controller IP cores to ensure compatibility with the Bosch CAN standard and to allow precise hardware timing and control over the transmission and reception of CAN/ARINC 825/CANaerospace messages. The Xilinx FPGAs and the CANflight firmware provide local buffering and 30ns time stamp resolution for all CAN messages and implement ARINC825/CANaerospace specific protocol functions including record/playback functionality to offload the host. The two CAN channels work under sustained 100% bus load without dropping any messages. The CANflight also supports CAN listen only and loopback modes. An onboard MicroSD interface is included on each module for data acquisition storage and for module configuration information.

Please note that the CANflight supports CAN and ARINC-825 up to ARINC-825-2. If you need CAN-FD and ARINC-825-4, please see our isolated 16-channel CAN-FD card, the XMC-A825-16 board.
