SpaceWire Recorder - STAR

SpaceWire Recorder - STAR
SpaceWire Recorder
The SpaceWire Recorder is designed to support the validation and
debugging of complete SpaceWire systems. Using advanced
SpaceWire technology from STAR-Dundee Ltd and the very latest
solid state data storage technology, the SpaceWire Recorder offers
exceptional SpaceWire recording capabilities.
Integrated in a single unit and incorporating the necessary
recording, display and analysis software, the STAR-Dundee
SpaceWire recorder is ready to operate out of the box with
performance guaranteed. The SpaceWire links to be recorded are
passed into one SpaceWire connector of the recorder unit and out
of another and monitored transparently. The recorder is then able
to record SpaceWire packets and time-codes flowing through the
SpaceWire link in both directions. The high performance recording
technology allows recording of a link sending data at full speed
over a 200 Mbits/s SpaceWire link (160 Mbits/s data rate in each
direction). Up to four links can be recorded simultaneously and
displayed in the same high-resolution time-frame. Remote
operation can be performed using integrated Gigabit Ethernet
ports.

SpaceWire Recorder Unit
The SpaceWire Recorder unit comprises a half-width 3U PXI/cPCI
rack, fitted with a SpaceWire Recorder board, a control computer
and one or more SATA solid state disc drives. The SpaceWire
Recorder board has eight SpaceWire interfaces which are able to
support recording of SpaceWire packets running over both
directions of up to four links. The control computer provides a
range of interfaces to the SpaceWire recorder including dual
Gigabit Ethernet for remote control or data logging. The SpaceWire
Recorder is fitted as standard with one 960 GByte SATA solid state
disc drive to give the ultimate in recording data rate and reliability.
The unit is mains powered and can operate as a desktop unit or be
rack mounted.
