SpaceWire CODEC IP core

SpaceWire CODEC IP is a complete and configurable solution for high-data rate on-board communications. SpaceWire is a bi-directional, full-duplex serial data communication link, and is the current state-of-the-art in on-board communications. SpaceWire is based on LVDS physical layer, resulting in a low-power high-speed link.
SpaceWire CODEC IP is fully compliant with the SpaceWire ECSS-E-ST-50-12C standard.
