CAN Verification IP

The CAN(Controller area network) Bus Verification IP (VIP) is a solution for verification of CAN2.0 designs. The provided verification package includes CAN2.0 verification IP, integration examples and extensive test suit which covers most of the scenarios defined in the ISO/DIS 16845(Conformance test plan). The VIP is fully compliant with CAN2.0B specification and can be very powerful tool to check, monitor and debug the CAN2.0-Bus protocol.

You can download the CAN2.0-Bus Verification IP from Downloads page.


  1. Compliant to the CAN2.0B specification
  2. Supports all frame types: Data frames, Remote frames, Error frames Overload frames
  3. Automatic response to the remote frames
