SpaceFibreis the next generation data link and network technology being developed by University of Dundee for the European Space Agency. Thishighspeed technology runs over both copper and fibre optic cables and is backwards compatible with the ubiquitous SpaceWiretechnology. SpaceFibre provides 12 times the throughput of a SpW link (2.5 Gbps) with current flight qualified technology together with inbuilt QoS and FDIR capabilities. This paper details the first implementation of SpaceFibre in a radiation tolerant device in the frame of the VHiSSI project. The functionality of this ASIC chip is explained and the results of the functional and Total Ionising Dose and Single Event Effect radiation testing are detailed.
