STAR-Dundee is an aerospace engineering company focused on spacecraft on-board data-handling and processing technology. The company delivers a comprehensive range of test and development equipment, chip designs, and IP cores to the world's space agencies and the international aerospace industry. STAR-Dundee is a world leader in SpaceWire and SpaceFibre technology.
SpaceWire is a spacecraft on-board data-handling network that connects instruments to the mass-memory, data processors, and control processors.
SpaceFibre is a multi-Gbits/s, on-board network technology for spaceflight applications, which runs over electrical or fibre-optic cables. It complements SpaceWire: improving data rate by a factor of 10, reducing cable mass by a factor of two, and providing QoS and FDIR capabilities.
The provision of VxWorks support for STAR-Dundee's range of SpaceWire and SpaceFibre cPCI, PCI and PXI products to provide real-time operating system support for spacecraft test and development.
STAR-Dundee offers device drivers to support Wind River VxWorks products. These drivers provide access to the STAR-Dundee cPCI, PCI, and PXI range of SpaceWire and SpaceFibre test and development equipment from the VxWorks real-time operating system. Users can utilize the combination of VxWorks and STAR-Dundee products to develop applications to interact with a spacecraft network in a deterministic and responsive manner.
- Deterministic, high-speed delivery of packets on SpaceWire and SpaceFibre networks
- Access to features required when testing spacecraft networks such as error injection and monitoring of time-codes
- APIs for accessing these features that are well documented and consistent with other platforms, easing migration
