Overview

CAES offers a comprehensive SpaceWire product family that includes our physical layer transceiver, node interface IP, 4-port router and FPGA-based SpaceWire router.  

Our partnership with 4Links Limited enables our North American customers access and support to SpaceWire test equipment for a complete SpaceWire solution.

SpaceWire is a standard governing serial communication between satellite components.  Originally developed by the European Space Agency (ESA), SpaceWire marries IEEE-1355 with a LVDS physical layer.  SpaceWire is a self-managing point-to-point serial interface that provides high speed, low power operation while offering a flexible user protocol.  Targeted for high-speed links and networks for use onboard spacecraft to ease the interconnection of sensors, mass-memories, processing units and downlink telemetry sub-systems.
