To support the validation and debugging of complete SpaceWire systems, STAR-Dundee Ltd have developed a SpaceWire Recorder. Using STAR-Dundee SpaceWire technology and the latest solid state data storage technology, the SpaceWire Recorder is capable of unobtrusively recording traffic on up to four links in both directions at a maximum aggregate data rate of 600Mbit/s. The maximum amount of data that can be recorded is limited only by the size of the solid state disks used. A Traffic Viewer software application provides a simple means of operating the recorder, as well as displaying and managing the large volume of SpaceWire traffic that can be recorded.
