SpaceFibre 2018 Tutorial

Monday 14 May 2018

14:00-18:00 SpaceFibre Tutorial

SpaceFibre is the next generation of SpaceWire technology, which supports multi-gigabit/s data rates, provides quality of service, incorporates fault detection, isolation and recovery capabilities, has a small footprint and is backwards compatible with SpaceWire at the network level. The SpaceFibre standard is complete and due to be published by the ECSS in 2018.

Immediately prior to the SpaceWire Conference in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Steve Parkes, who wrote the SpaceFibre standard with inputs from several spacecraft engineers, will deliver a detailed tutorial on SpaceFibre, explaining how the protocol operates and how it can be used to solve many communications problems on-board spacecraft. This tutorial is free for everyone registered for the SpaceWire conference.

The Tutorial will take place at the Westin Hotel, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California
