Linux-Ready In-Vehicle PC Supports CAN Bus, OBD-II And SAE J1939

AIV-APL1V1FL Intel Pentium-N4200 Fan Less In-Vehicle ComputerAcrosser introduced its rugged, Linux-ready “AIV-APL1V1FL” in-vehicle PC with a quad Pentium N4200 with 2x SATA bays, 3x mini-PCIe, and CAN Bus, OBD-II, or SAE J1939 telematics.

Acrosser’s fanless AIV-APL1V1FL computer is designed for fleet management, much like earlier models such as the wider-frame AIV-HM76V1FL (Intel 3rd Gen Intel Core “Ivy Bridge”) and AVI-QM97V1FL (5th Gen Core “Broadwell”) computers. The AIV-APL1V1FL instead adopts an Intel Pentium N4200 from the Apollo Lake generation. Like the previous models it offers a CAN 2.0A/2.0B port for plugging into a truck’s telematics system, and it also gives you the option of swapping that out for an OBDII+ J1939 telematics port.

The system supports “advanced driver management to prevent dangers and to take proactive measures to improve fuel economy and costs,” says Acrosser. It can also be used on public transit vehicles with support for video surveillance systems for driver coaching, vehicle performance tracking, and safety monitoring. Installed on an ambulance, it can be used to improve route planning and telemedicine service.

The AIV-APL1V1FL supports up to 8GB DDR3L-1866 RAM, and features 2x swappable, SATA III based 2.5-inch bays with anti-vibration support. Anti-shock support is offered if you use SSDs instead of HDDs.

The AIV-APL1V1FL is further equipped with 2x Intel i210AT Gigabit Ethernet ports, as well as 3x mini-PCIe slots instead of 2x on the earlier models. Optional mini-PCIe wireless modules include Quectel or Sierra 4G + GPS + Glonass modules, a Realtek (2T2R) WiFi-ac + BT, and a Sparklan (2T2R) WiFi-n + BT module.

Separate antennas are available for GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 4G LTE, and there’s also a fifth antenna. Acrosser provides 2x SIM card slots that enable cards to be swapped via an external latch opening.

SAE J1939 to Bluetooth Gateway With 9-Pin Deutsch Connection Cable

SAE J1939 to Bluetooth Gateway With 9-Pin Deutsch Connection CableThe  jCOM.J1939.BT gateway is a high-performance, low-latency, wireless vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with a Bluetooth COM port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network. An SAE J1939 cable, suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection, is included with the gateway.

The gateway supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.
