Is this device supported for use with the Linux SocketCAN drivers?

Hi,

yes, it will be supported with kernel Version 4.9 or higher. If you use an older kernel you have to install our peak-linux-driver 8.3.1 and compile it for NetDev support, or install an out-of-tree kernel driver for the PCAN-USB-X6.

regards

Michael
