SpaceFibre Test and Development Equipment

STAR-Dundee has developed a range of SpaceFibre test and development equipment.

STAR Fire

The STAR-Fire unit has two SpaceWire and two SpaceFibre interfaces. The SpaceFibre interfaces each have eight virtual channels, two connected to an internal SpaceWire router and the other six connected to internal high-speed packet generators/checkers. The STAR Fire unit can operate as a high-speed data source (packet generator), a high-speed data sink (packet checker), a SpaceWire to SpaceFibre bridge (for two SpaceWire ports and also a USB port), and as a SpaceFibre link analyser.STAR Fire

A USB3.0 version of the STAR Fire unit will be released soon.

SpaceWire and SpaceFibre FMC Board

The STAR-Dundee SpaceWire and SpaceFibre FMC board is an FMC board that provides 4 buffered SpaceWire ports and two SpaceFibre ports to a host FPGA development board. It works with the Microsemi RTG4 Development board to enable design of SpaceWire and SpaceFibre using the RTG4.SpaceWire and SpaceFibre FMC Board

SpaceFibre PXI

The STAR-Dundee SpaceFibre PXI interface board is a 3U cPCI/PXI board with four SpaceFibre interfaces.

More information coming soon. For advanced information please contact STAR-Dundee.

SpaceWire to SpaceFibre Bridge

The STAR-Dundee SpaceWire to SpaceFibre Bridge device connects 10 SpaceWire ports to a pair of SpaceFibre interfaces.

More information coming soon. For advanced information please contact STAR-Dundee.

SpaceFibre Routing Switch

The STAR-Dundee SpaceFibre Routing Switch is a 3U cPCI/PXI board that incorporates a SpaceFibre router with eight SpaceFibre ports (ports1-8) each with four virtual channels, four SpaceWire ports each connected to a separate virtual channel of port 9, and a configuration, control and status port (port0).SpaceFire Routing Switch

SpaceFibre-Lite FMC Board

The STAR-Dundee SpaceFibre-Lite FMC board provides a complete SpaceFibre interface programmed in a Microsemi AX1000 design. Operating with a TLK2711 SerDes chip this design is able to operate at 2.5 Gbits/s and is simple to transfer to the radiation tolerant versions of these chips, using the STAR-Dundee SpaceFibre IP cores.SpaceFire-Lite FMC Board
