STAR Fire

STAR Fire is designed to support the evaluation and early adoption of SpaceFibre technology with a comprehensive test and development platform. STAR Fire can operate as a bridge between SpaceWire and SpaceFibre, as a SpaceFibre link analyser, as a rapid SpaceFibre packet generation and checking unit, and as a decoder of SpaceFibre signals for operation with a Logic Analyser. It is able to  support SpaceFibre FPGA, chip, board and system development. Furthermore STAR Fire provides two SpaceFibre interfaces enabling initial experimentation with SpaceFibre without needing any other equipment. As the project develops STAR Fire can take on other roles as required. STAR Fire also operates as a SpaceWire interface device.
