CAN & LIN From a Single Tool

We imagined a tool that let us break down the communication barriers between CAN and LIN. Then, we built it. Introducing the world’s first tool to enable on-the-fly switching for CAN/LIN, CAN/CAN and LIN/LIN busses.

Introducing the Kvaser Hybrid 2x CAN/LIN

A Tool Designed To Simplify

CAN & LIN in Harmony

An essential tool for automotive engineers, CAN and LIN can now be configured using a single tool. Easy access, from climate control to calibration, using one device.

Unbeatable Performance

This compact, high-performance interface uses a standard USB connector and two high-speed CAN or LIN channels in separate 9-pin D-SUB CAN connectors.

Configuration Begins Instantly

With Kvaser’s software, configuration can begin as soon as the interface is powered on.

Ultimate 2-Channel Flexibility

Each channel can be configured for either CAN or LIN, allowing multiple configurations tailored to your needs.

Universal Standards Compatibility

The Kvaser Hybrid is fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000 and DeviceNet—plus it works with Kvaser’s universal API.

Forward-Thinking Support

The Kvaser Hybrid supports CAN FD and includes Kvaser TRX, a lightweight development tool that makes initial programming simple.
