Ifak Driver

Border Patrol Academy’s Driver Training Department (DTD) curriculum is designed to prepare students with the driving ability, tactical skills, and occupational knowledge required to work as a law enforcement professional. The 86 hours of instruction is 20% classroom time and 80% practical exercises. The little PCC was night and day difference. The gun runs flawlessly, and with the new folding rear sight (I went with the larger aperture though they do have a notch variant) the little gun is a tack driver. I loved this gun before, now it's more like a marriage, lol. Great aftermarket parts.

The PEAK-System PC-CAN interfaces product family is fully operational with any Linux OS.

Many Linux distributions, or rather the used Linux Kernels, already contain the drivers for PEAK-System's CAN interfaces. The CAN interfaces are then accessed via the common SocketCAN framework as network devices (aka netdev).

Ifak Driver

If you are using Linux environments missing a driver (e.g. minimized Linux environments, older Kernels) or you want to use our character-based driver (chardev) e.g. in connection with the PCAN-Basic API, you need our PCAN Driver for Linux package and compile the driver yourself.

Drivers Included in Linux Kernel

Key Features

  • Out-of-the-box usage, suitable for most cases
  • Part of the Linux mainline kernel, classic CAN since 3.2 (peak_pci), CAN FD since 4.0 (peak_usb)
  • CAN channels are handled as network devices (netdev)

Check: Are CAN drivers part of your Linux environment?

Open a terminal and type:
grep PEAK_ /boot/config-`uname -r`
All PEAK drivers are listed (y = included in kernel, m = separate module) but this may not work in every Linux environment.

Check: Is the CAN device initialized?

Open a terminal and type: lsmod grep ^peak
If, for example, a USB-based CAN interface from PEAK is connected and initialized, the output will be at least one line starting with peak_usb.

Driver Package for Proprietary Purposes

Key Features

  • Contains sources for chardev and for netdev drivers
  • Monolithic driver in contrast to mainline SocketCAN environment with several drivers
  • Must be compiled for the target system
  • Can be build for real-time Linux extensions like Xenomai or RTAI (RTDM)
  • Enables the use of PCAN-Basic Linux API calls (not possible via SocketCAN)
  • Provides extra information like the bus load (depending on used CAN interface)
  • Support of specific hardware features
  • True hardware time stamps with handling of clock drifts
  • Mainline kernel drivers are blacklisted when using the PCAN driver

When to Use the Package

  • Your CAN application relies on PCAN-Basic for Linux API (based on chardev driver).
  • The Kernel you run is too old to include one of the peak_* mainline drivers you need.
  • The Kernel you run includes peak_* mainline drivers that are out-of-date or might contain issues.

PCAN-Basic for Linux

API for Connecting to CAN and CAN FD Buses

We provide the PCAN-Basic API to allow the development of your own CAN applications for Linux. Programmers can use the languages C++, Java, and Python 3.x. More information about PCAN-Basic is available at its product web page.

System requirements: This API requires the chardev driver. Please use the Driver Package for Proprietary Purposes.

PCAN-View for Linux

Software for Displaying CAN and CAN FD Messages

PCAN-View is a simple CAN monitor software for receiving and transmitting CAN and CAN FD messages. PCAN-View for Linux is based on the NCurses library.
System requirements: This software requires the chardev driver. Please use the Driver Package for Proprietary Purposes.

How to install PCAN-View via repository

Installing software through repository needs first to register the repository only once. Next to the first installation of the software, there is nothing you have to do, except installing available updates when prompted by your system.

Debian-based Linux distributions

Download and install the following file peak-system.list from the PEAK-System website:

Note: If the lsb_release tool is not installed on your Linux system then replace `lsb_release -cs` by the name of your Linux distribution. For example:

Then, download and install the PEAK-System public key for apt-secure, so that the repository is trusted:

Additional informationen
The isCAN Multidriver is a driver for the isCAN USB adapter and the installation is required for the correct performance of the software CANKlima.

Ifak Hart Usb Driver

  1. Download and unpack the isCan_Multidriver_v5.0.zip Archive.
  2. Execute isCanUSBDriver.exe by double click.
  3. After successful installation plug in the isCAN USB adapter and ensure that it has been detected by USB.
  4. Start the isCAN Driver Configuration via Start->Programs->ifak system->is CAN Multidriver->is CAN Configurator and add the isCAN USB adapter.
  5. Important information for users of older adapters with serial numbers less than 10000: These adapters need an upgrade to work with 64 bit Windows versions. You need to perform this upgrade with a 32 bit version of Windows. Install the driver software on a 32 bit version of Windows, attach the adapter to the PC and start the isCAN Driver Configuration program. This program will detect the old adapter and start the upgrade process automatically.
