The Komodo interface is an all-in-one tool capable of active CAN data transmission as well as non-intrusive CAN bus monitoring. The portable and durable Komodo interface easily integrates into end-user systems. It provides a flexible and scalable solution for a variety of applications including automotive, military, industrial, medical, and more.
The Komodo CAN Duo Interface features two independently customizable CAN channels, a royalty-free API, and cross-platform support for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Dual-channel: two independent customizable CAN channels
Transfer rate up to 1 Mbps
Independent galvanic isolation per CAN channel
8 configurable GPIOs
USB 2.0 full-speed; bus-powered
Free software and API
Cross-platform support: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X compatible
Configure each CAN channel independently as either an adapter or a non-intrusive analyzer. Communicate and/or monitor two different CAN buses with a single Komodo interface.
Full Featured CAN Adapter
The Komodo CAN Duo Interface can operate as a CAN node, to send and receive messages, on up to two different CAN networks. Communicate with any type of CAN network, from automotive systems to industrial controls. The Komodo interface operates at up to a maximum bitrate of 1 Mbps.
True Real-Time Monitoring
Non-intrusively monitor up to 2 different CAN buses and see the data as it is captured. Each channel of the Komodo interface is independently, galvanically isolated and can capture CAN data at up to 1 Mbps.
The 8 GPIO pins can be configured for input or output, allowing the Komodo interface to communicate with external logic.
The Komodo CAN Duo Interface is rated for operating temperatures from -40°C to +85°C (non-condensing). Any use of the Komodo interface outside the temperature specification will void the hardware warranty.
The Komodo CAN Duo Interface comes complete with a royalty-free API. There are no additional yearly support contracts and no fees for software updates.
The low cost makes it affordable for a company to provide every developer with their own interface. The benefits of every developer having their own interface are:
Less time wasted because developers do not have to share tools or go to the lab to debug simple problems.
Less wasted time means higher productivity because developers can identify and fix problems quickly and easily with less down-time.
Higher productivity means shorter development cycles. Projects get done on time and on budget.
By saving just one day of engineering time, the Komodo CAN Duo Interface will have paid for itself.
The Komodo interface is completely field-upgradable via USB. Total Phase is committed to improving the Komodo interface and making these improvements available to our customers free of charge. There are no yearly support contracts and no software update fees.
Rosetta Language Bindings - Development API
The full power of the Komodo CAN Duo Interface is available for custom software applications through a free and royalty-free API. Full functionality is available for automated test suites, production test fixtures, and more.
Develop custom solutions in C/C++, C#, VB, .NET, Python
Clean API is well-documented and easy to integrate
Fully Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X compatible
Separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available for all three platforms
Royalty-free API can be used without licensing fees
The Komodo CAN Duo Interface was engineered from the very beginning to be a cross-platform device. The software and utilities for the Komodo interface function on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X so that you can develop software for your preferred platform.
The software is officially supported on Windows XP (SP2 or later, 32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit).
The software has been designed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 with kernel 2.6. Customers have reported successful operation with SuSE and Ubuntu distributions. Please be aware that there may be significant differences and idiosyncracies in the way that different distributions of Linux operate. As such, Total Phase may not be able to support your particular distribution of Linux. Support will be offered on a case-by-case basis.
Mac OS X
The software is supported on Intel versions of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard.
