SpaceFibre is the ESA standard for very high-speed serial communication links between the units of the satellite. It is compatible with SpaceWire at packet level, but the data-link and physical layers are completely re-defined in order to allow Link rate in the order of magnitude of 1 Gb/s to tens of Gb/s, i.e., 10x to 100x higher data-rate with respect to SpaceWire, Quality-of-Service (QoS) and enhanced Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR). Integrated Quality-of-Service allows to have different types of traffic over the same SpaceFibre network and to satisfy the overall requirements of bandwidth and latency of each traffic source. For example, control and data can be running on the same SpaceFibre networks by allocating the correct Quality-of-Service for each traffic source.
IngeniArs has long experience on SpaceFibre technology also thanks to the participation of its collaborators within the ECSS standardization working group. IngeniArs SpaceFibre technology was developed mainly thanks to Horizon 2020 SME instrument project SIMPLE, which allowed to develop both the SpaceFibre IP Core ready for flight usage and the relevant test equipment to support the validation phases.
