SpaceWire IP Cores

STAR-Dundee offers a comprehensive range of SpaceWire and SpaceFibre IP cores used across the space industry in flight FPGAs and ASICs.

Two independant IP cores are availible that together support the SpaceWire standard:

  • SpaceWire CODEC Interface IP
  • SpaceWire Router IP

Each of our SpaceWire IP cores has the following features:

  • Delivered as synthesisable VHDL source code in obfuscated or clear code format
  • Configurable, giving flexibility through generics in the VHDL source
  • Low power, carefully designed to minimise switching frequencies and with a number of features including automatic power-down/power-up as required
  • Easily targeted for major FPGAs including Microsemi, Xilinx, Intel and BRAVE. Support for radiation tolerant device features including the Microsemi RTAX, ProASIC(3/3E/3L and RTG4. Please contact STAR-Dundee for other target devices.
  • Reference designs are available for Microsemi ProASIC3L and RTG4 devices. Please contact STAR-Dundee for other target devices.

The SpaceWire IP Cores are designed to provide the user with high-performance, low power consumption SpaceWire capability at a lower cost than developing a core in house.These cores are present in STAR-Dundee’s test and development equipment and have been widely used across the space industry, including in the SpaceWire 10X Router ASIC (AT7910E) and SpaceWire Remote Terminal Controller ASIC (AT7913E) radiation tolerant chips available from Atmel.

Different licences and licence upgrade options are available to help users reduce their costs even further. Discounts may also be applied for Universities and ESA member states.
