Overview

--------
10
 
11 6 jorisvr
SpaceWire Light is a SpaceWire encoder-decoder.
12 2 jorisvr
It is synthesizable for FPGA targets (up to 200 Mbit on Spartan-3).
13 6 jorisvr
Application interfaces include a simple FIFO interface, as well as
14
an AMBA bus interface for LEON3 system-on-chip designs.
15 2 jorisvr
 
16
The goal is to provide a complete, reliable, fast implementation
17 6 jorisvr
of a SpaceWire encoder-decoder according to ECSS-E-ST-50-12C.
18 2 jorisvr
The core is "light" in the sense that it does not provide additional
19
features such as RMAP, routing etc.
20
 
21 7 jorisvr
SpaceWire Light supports two application interfaces. One interface
22
provides FIFO-style access to RX/TX buffers in the core (spwstream).
23
This interface can be easily integrated into most digital designs.
24
 
25
Alternatively, an AMBA bus interface (spwamba) may be used to integrate
26
SpaceWire Light into a LEON3 embedded system. This interface supports
27 8 jorisvr
DMA-based data transfers. The code for the AMBA interface depends on GRLIB,
28 7 jorisvr
a VHDL library from Aeroflex Gaisler. The source of GRLIB must be downloaded
29
separately from http://www.gaisler.com/.

Version history

---------------

64 12 jorisvr
2013-05-04
65
 * spwahbmst.vhd: Correctly handle 64-bit AHB bus.
66
   Many thanks to Tam Do for reporting this bug.
67
 * Updates to support GRLIB 1.2.2.
68
 * Manual: update to refer to GRLIB 1.2.2.
69
 
70 11 jorisvr
2013-02-04
71
 * spwrecvfront_generic.vhd: Correctly handle situation where incoming
72
   Data/Strobe signals are not '0' at the beginning of the link setup.
73
   Many thanks to Gökçe Aydos for reporting this bug.
74
 
75 10 jorisvr
2011-08-11
76
 * spwahbmst.vhd: Fix incorrect "hsize" indication on AHB access.
77
   Many thanks to Søren Larsen for reporting this bug.
78
 
79 9 jorisvr
2011-07-10
80
 * spwamba_test.c: Longer delays to run correctly on 100 MHz LEON3.
81
 * spwltest.c: Allow smaller user-defined block size; skip unnecessery tests.
82
 * License changed to allow LGPL in addition to GPL for non-GRLIB parts.
83
 
84 7 jorisvr
2011-02-11
85
 * spwamba: Add tick_out signal.
86
 * swprecvfront_fast: Simplified data transfer between clock domains.
87
 * Clean up synchronization of data paths between clock domains.
88
 
89 6 jorisvr
2010-12-03
90
 * Add RTEMS driver and test program for SPWAMBA.
91
 * Add documentation for SPWAMBA.
92
 * spwamba: Change TX FIFO management; start new transfer when there is room
93
   for a maximum burst instead of aiming for 3/4 fill rate.
94
 * spwamba: Do not reset spwxmit in response to software reset.
95
 * spwamba: Fix bug in maximum burst size calculation.
96
 * spwamba: Optimize address generation in burst state machine.
97
 * spwamba: More careful calculation of RX credit.
98
 
99
2010-09-21
100 5 jorisvr
 * Add AMBA interface (preliminary version, untested, undocumented).
101
 * License changed from LGPL to GPL.
102
 * Again fix an issue with EEP injection on link loss.
103
 * Add DATAPATHONLY keyword to timing constraints.
104
 
105 4 jorisvr
2010-09-12
106
 * Fixed issue with automatic discarding of TX data after link error.
107
 * After link error, spwstream will terminate current packet with EEP even
108
   if the linkdisable signal is active.
109
 * Added code comment to clarify a dependency between spwrecv and spwlink.
110
   (Thanks to Rafael Corsi Ferrao for reporting this obscurity.)
111
 
112
2010-07-12
113
 * Added manual.
114
 * Fix incorrect bitrate during link handshake. The system clock frequency
115
   was used to compute the initial tx clock divider, even when the clock
116
   divider would act on the txclk instead of the system clock.
117
 * Improve fast transmitter. Sending FCT tokens at high bit rate no longer
118
   causes insertion of a NULL token.
119
 
120
2010-06-08
121
 * Initial release.
