SpaceWire Light is a SpaceWire encoder-decoder with FIFO interface.
It is synthesizable for FPGA targets (up to 200 Mbit on Spartan-3).

The goal is to provide a complete, reliable, fast implementation
of a SpaceWire encoder-decoder according to ECSS-E-50-12C.
The core is "light" in the sense that it does not provide additional
features such as RMAP, routing etc.

This core would be very suitable for application in lab environments,
to add a SpaceWire interface to a custom FPGA design, and for interfacing
between existing SpaceWire equipment and a computer.

The project is currently very much in alpha phase. Most importantly,
there is no proper documentation. I WILL PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION SOON.

Short term plan:
 * more testing
 * documentation

Long term plan:
 * add AMBA bus interface


For the latest version of this core, see the OpenCores project page.
