TELETEL participated in the 16th SpaceWire Working Group Meeting held in ESTEC Noordwijk on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of March 2011
TELETEL participants presented the work performed within the Protocol Validation System (PVS) activity (ESTEC Contract no. 22256/09/NL/CBI-CCN3), which dealt with the analysis and evaluation of the performance issues of the SpW-D protocol (latency, efficiency, time-slot periods) through simulations and prototype implementations on TELETEL’s SAFIRE PVS SpaceWire platform.
A theoretical analysis of the protocol was presented for various combinations of time-slot periods, maximum payload size and link rates, identifying issues for consideration and proposing protocol extensions in order to overcome the problems identified per traffic profile. Furthermore, an analysis of various traffic profiles on theoretical network topologies, as well as in actual space missions, was also presented.
Implementation aspects of the SpW-D protocol on a prototype FPGA implementation were presented, indicating design metrics (e.g. gate counts, memories required for the implementation, maximum speed, etc.) and possible implementation difficulties. The presentation included an analysis of the results obtained from experimentation on the prototype implementation, along with a comparison against the results from the theoretical analysis and simulations. Recommendations for future SpW-D protocol evolutions concluded the presentation.
