    Abstract

    This paper begins with an overview of SpaceWire networks, which are made up of nodes and routers. The method of addressing SpaceWire packets for transfer across a SpaceWire network is described and then two of the key features of SpaceWire networks - bandwidth sharing and fault tolerance - are highlighted and explained. Priority addressing as a means of providing quality of service control is introduced. Finally the time distribution mechanism of SpaceWire is explained.
