RTX Driver

In order to satisfy the users to apply the RTX system, ICPDAS provides the RTX driver for PISO-CAN series CAN card. If users want to combine the CAN communication interface in their time-critical system, the RTX driver of the PISO-CAN series CAN cards can help them to do this easily and quickly. Furthermore, the name and parameters of the APIs in the RTX driver are the same as in the Windows driver. Users don’t need to pay more efforts to study how to use the APIs of the RTX driver if they have used the Windows driver before. The RTX driver increases the additional worth of the PISO-CAN series CAN cards, and satisfies the users to get the highly real-time system. By owing to the feature of high price performance and highly real-time, PISO-CAN series CAN cards will be applied in more wide and more variant CAN applications.


  1. The name and parameters of the APIs in RTX driver are the same as them in the Windows driver. Users don’t need to learn the new usage if they have used the PISO-CAN series CAN card before.
  2. If the PISO-CAN series CAN card can get the independent IRQ, it supports interrupt function.
  3. Direct I/O control and highly real-time feature
  4. Support Windows2000 SP4, and Windows XP SP2 OS.
  5. Support RTX version 8.0 or later.

RTX Structure

Real-time Test:

  • Platform: Windows XP SP2+PEX-CAN200i
  • Device: I-7186EXD-CAN with MiniOS7 (single tasking OS)
  • Send and receive 10000 CAN 2.0B 8-byte messages. Repeat this procedure for 10 times.

SocketCAN Driver

The SocketCAN is based on the Linux operating system, and it contains the implementation interface of the network stack and the hardware driver. The hardware manufacturers program the hardware driver for the SocketCAN, and the network stack provides the standard BSD Socket APIs for users. Therefore, from the users’ point of view, they can easily and quickly program their applications without being familiar with the various APIs of the different hardware interface through the SocketCAN network stack.

Socket CAN

We have provided the SocketCAN drivers for several kinds of CAN interface cards. Users can implement their SocketCAN-based application on the Linux platform by using these cards. Besides, we also support static library of CANopen/DeviceNet master on x86 hardware platform. It can help users communicate with CANopen/DeviceNet slaves more easily.


  • Support Linux kernel version 2.6.31~2.6.34 (x86 hardware platform only).
  • Provide CANopen/DeviceNet master static library.
  • Standard interface for SocketCAN package. Users can use extended BSD socket APIs, you can program the CAN application as building a socket program.
  • Support Virtual CAN interface. Users can map several virtual CAN port into one physical CAN port. Each virtual CAN port has its own socket. Through these sockets, users can build the multi-thread application more easily.
  • Provide the RAW socket, CANopen master and DeviceNet master demos.
  • Good price-performance for economical applications.

Virtual CAN

There are various communication interfaces among the CAN devices like PCI CAN board, Ethernet series and RS-232 series CAN module. According to different purpose of users’ projects, the users maybe need to choice different CAN products. Because of this situation, the programmer should develop different communication program to handle different CAN device. For example, the user should develop “Socket Client” to communicate with I-7540. When using I-7530, the users need “UART” technique to communicate with it. Nowadays, ICP DAS develop the Virtual CAN technique. The Virtual CAN driver is the excellent tool for users. It transforms whole CAN devices into Virtual CAN port. And then it generates Virtual CAN port like “VxCAN 1” or “VxCAN 2”. The users could send and receive CAN message by appointing the Virtual CAN port number. The users don't need to care about what kind of CAN device which is used.

We also have the configuration utility to configure the ICPDAS’s DeviceNet hardware in your PC. The users not only operate easily and develop application rapidly, but also reduce the complexity of applications. The users can communicate with the remote DeviceNet devices in a few simple steps and need not to know about the detail of the DeviceNet protocol. It is a very useful tool to develop the DeviceNet application in NI LabVIEW environment by using ICPDAS-DNET. After finishing install the tool, we offer many basic and advance demo programs for users to reduce the development time. If you are new engineer to develop DeviceNet application, you can refer to the demo programs first. It is the best tool to develop various distributed systems and other industrial application software on DeviceNet network.
