Programmable interface for PC communication to automotive target systems.

The SPC5 Connect is a programmable USB interface designed to connect a PC to development hardware or integrated modules via automotive communications channels such as CAN, SCI, LIN and K-Line.

Based on the 32bit SPC563M64 microcontroller the SPC5 Connect offers from a PC via USB full access to the integrated microcontroller features like I/O signals, analog channels, external interrupts input and automotive communication buses such as CAN, UART,K-Line, LIN and SPI.

The hardware features, also accessible through the Script Engine firmware, makes the SPC5 Connect a powerful, low cost and easy to use tool for rapid development of small scripts in lab applications.

The included extension flat cable with the 14 pin header connector and the DB9 connector makes possible to easily connect a daughter board or wrapping board for a specific application.

SPC5 Connect is supported by a specific set of software tools which allows easy programming of the device together with basic control and monitoring features of target signals. The software application has been designed by STMicroelectronics experts.
