Overview
22
--------
23
 
24
SpaceWire Light is a SpaceWire encoder-decoder with FIFO interface.
25
It is synthesizable for FPGA targets (up to 200 Mbit on Spartan-3).
26
 
27
The goal is to provide a complete, reliable, fast implementation
28
of a SpaceWire encoder-decoder according to ECSS-E-50-12C.
29
The core is "light" in the sense that it does not provide additional
30
features such as RMAP, routing etc.

Future plans:
35 5 jorisvr
 * testing and documentation of AMBA bus interface
36
 * redesign fast receiver to improve performance
37
 * add support for Xilinx Virtex platform

44
 * Add AMBA interface (preliminary version, untested, undocumented).
45
 * License changed from LGPL to GPL.
46
 * Again fix an issue with EEP injection on link loss.
47
 * Add DATAPATHONLY keyword to timing constraints.

50
 * Fixed issue with automatic discarding of TX data after link error.
51
 * After link error, spwstream will terminate current packet with EEP even
52
   if the linkdisable signal is active.
53
 * Added code comment to clarify a dependency between spwrecv and spwlink.
54
   (Thanks to Rafael Corsi Ferrao for reporting this obscurity.)
55
 
56
2010-07-12
57
 * Added manual.
58
 * Fix incorrect bitrate during link handshake. The system clock frequency
59
   was used to compute the initial tx clock divider, even when the clock
60
   divider would act on the txclk instead of the system clock.
61
 * Improve fast transmitter. Sending FCT tokens at high bit rate no longer
62
   causes insertion of a NULL token.
63
 
64
2010-06-08
65
 * Initial release.
