The SpaceFibre Codec IP (beta version) was released by STAR-Dundee at the end of 2013. The SpaceFibre standard and the codec IP are designed in the way that it shall work with TI TLK2711-SP - a space qualified SERDES device [1]. This paper presents the work where the Codec IP and the TLK2711 are used to implement a SpaceFibre link. Firstly the SpaceFibre Codec and the TLK2711 device are introduced, especially the power-on reset and signal detection operations of the TLK2711 for they are fundamental for the SpaceFibre link. Experiments on link initialisation are presented with results and analysis.
