If purchased with the Kvaser Hybrid or Hybrid Pro interfaces, it can be used with LIN, Classical CAN, and CAN FD in one interface. These Kvaser interfaces have two channels that can be mapped to the X-Analyser software in any combination of these network protocols that users need to, e.g. channel 1 can be LIN and channel 2 can be CAN FD. Other features of the product are its LIN improvements such as importing schedule table from the LDF so that the LIN schedule is automatically ready to transmit, CAN FD support via any Kvaser interface that supports CAN FD, a object transmitter feature extended with he NEW Message Builder feature which allows the user to set the message data field based on CAN database signals. The CANopen feature has been extended with a Network Management control panel for controlling CANopen device NMT state.

The CAN physical layer analyser via the Picoscope 2206b USB oscilloscope scans the CAN network for 10 seconds and records 1 example of each CAN message. User can click on the CAN identifier and view the CAN_H, CAN_L and differential of the entire CAN frame in an oscilloscope type view. Each CAN frame trace for CAN_H and CAN_L electrical signals.

The LIN-featured product comes with 1-year email support which includes free updates. Subsequent maintenance contracts are available. The X-Analyser supports all Kvaser CAN and LIN interfaces.
