Issue Details

I have multiple NI-XNET devices of the same model. Some of them are labelled CAN-HS and the newer ones are labelled CAN-FD. Can all of them support CAN-FD or only the newer ones ?


Every CAN-HS interface supports CAN-FD, so even the older revisions of the NI-XNET devices can be used.

Additional Information

CAN-FD can be used as long as you have a compatible NI-XNET version. NI-XNET supports CAN-FD in version 14.0 or later.
