Kvaser's History

Industry leaders and definers since 1983

We began in the early 1980s to specialize in Distributed Embedded Control Systems. A few years later the Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol was published and the first CAN chip made available. Kvaser’s founders quickly recognised CAN’s many excellent features and understood the impact CAN would have on future embedded control systems. They made the strategic decision to dedicate Kvaser’s resources to producing CAN solutions, becoming one of the first companies to serve the now, almost ubiquitous, CAN industry.

With a mission to develop innovative CAN products tailor-made to meet the needs of engineers, Kvaser has amassed a broad spectrum of experience and expertise in CAN and related bus protocols. Our commitment to R&D investment and our strategic collaboration with other well-respected technology companies are among the factors that have led to Kvaser’s name becoming synonymous with CAN.

Our goals and commitment to our customers have remained the same throughout our company’s history. Kvaser’s aim is to be recognized as the leading provider of innovative and cost efficient CAN solutions. We strive to achieve this by listening to our customers and partners, understanding their problems and challenges, and focusing our innovative thinking and experience to help solve their needs.
