Flight Software Workshop 2016 Demo

STAR-Dundee is delighted to once again sponsor the 2016 Flight Software Workshop being held on the Caltech Campus in Pasadena, California.  As well as presenting the latest SpaceFibre developments, we are also demonstrating the latest SpaceFibre and SpaceWire technology at our exhibition stand.

If you're unable to attend, you can follow the workshop on Twitter: https://twitter.com/FSWWorkshop.  Our CEO's SpaceFIbre presentation is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWyZNSJnaEU, and starts 3 minutes in to the video.

2016 International SpaceWire Conference

STAR-Dundee enjoyed exhibiting at the 2016 International SpaceWire Conference held from 25th to 27th of October 2016 in Yokohama, Japan.  On our exhibition stand we demonstrated our latest SpaceWire and SpaceFibre products, including a demonstration of SpaceFibre multi-laning.  We also presented papers on various topics including SpaceFibre networks and multi-laning, SpaceFibre link analysis and test and development equipment, SpaceFibre flight equipment, SpaceWire-D and the new SpaceWire PXI devices.  Prior to the conference, some of the STAR-Dundee team presented tutorials on SpaceFibre and SpaceWire-D.

Small Satellite Conference 2016 Demo

STAR-Dundee is once again exhibiting at the Small Satellite Conference in Logan, Utah, USA.  Visit us at Booth Space 31 on the second floor to see our latest SpaceWire and SpaceFibre products.  On one side of the booth we are demonstrating our new SpaceFibre router PXI cards.  These are connected to Microsemi RTG4 devices through an FMC SpaceWire/SpaceFibre Board hosting both SpaceWire and SpaceFibre IP.  On the other side of the booth we are demonstrating the powerful triggering capabilities of the Brick Mk3.

SEE/MAPLD and Space Tech Expo logos

STAR-Dundee exhibited at two events in California in the week beginning 23rd of May.  From the 24th until the 25th we were at the 25th Annual Single Event Effects (SEE) Symposium coupled with the Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices (MAPLD) Workshop in La Jolla, San Diego.  In parallel, from the 24th to the 26th we were also in Pasadena at Space Tech Expo 2016.

At both events we had some of our SpaceWire and SpaceFibre products on display, including a demonstration of the SpaceFibre protocol running on the Microsemi RTG4 FPGA connected to our FMC SpaceWire/SpaceFibre Board.  We also demonstrated our new SpaceFibre Routers at SEE/MAPLD on the 24th and at Space Tech Expo on the 25th and 26th.  This demonstration highlights the features of SpaceFibre which make it ideal for many space applications:

  • High data rates – 2.5 Gbits/s links, plus multi-laning support.
  • SpaceWire compatibility – STAR Fire units are used to interconnect SpaceWire and SpaceFibre.
  • Low cable mass – Both flight and lab cables are used in the demonstration.
  • Quality of service – Multiple traffic streams are multiplexed over a single SpaceFibre link, with each stream assigned a percentage of the bandwidth.
  • Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery – Cables can be removed and the retry mechanism ensures the destination encounters no errors.
