Overview
23
--------
24
 
25
SpaceWire Light is a SpaceWire encoder-decoder with FIFO interface.
26
It is synthesizable for FPGA targets (up to 200 Mbit on Spartan-3).
27
 
28
The goal is to provide a complete, reliable, fast implementation
29
of a SpaceWire encoder-decoder according to ECSS-E-50-12C.
30
The core is "light" in the sense that it does not provide additional
31
features such as RMAP, routing etc.
32
 
33
This core would be very suitable for application in lab environments,
34
to add a SpaceWire interface to a custom FPGA design, and for interfacing
35
between existing SpaceWire equipment and a computer.
36
 
37
The project is currently very much in alpha phase. Most importantly,
38
there is no proper documentation. I WILL PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION SOON.

40
Short term plan:
41
 * more testing
42
 * documentation
43
 
44
Long term plan:
45
 * add AMBA bus interface
