SpaceWire RMAP 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 RMAP standard:

  • SpaceWire RMAP Initiator IP Core
  • SpaceWire RMAP Target IP Core

Each core is provided as VHDL source code, making each of the cores highly customisable through generic configuration parameters in the code. 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.

Further information on the SpaceWire RMAP IP Cores can be found in the datasheet below, and for technical queries please enter any questions in the additional comments section of the quotation (becomes available once you click Request Quote).
