iSAFT WizardLink Front-End

 

The iSAFT WizardLink Front-End is a WizardLink data interface with advanced asynchronous transmission and traffic generation capabilities that simulates WizardLink devices or instruments, enabling S/C integration tests before the availability of Flight Models.

It also includes a built-in recording function for received / transmitted packets (spy function), suitable for the validation of satellite/spacecraft flight devices and ground testbed devices implementing High Speed Serial WizardLink interfaces.

One such system can support  2 Р6 WizardLink ports. Its electrical interface is based on the TI TLK2711-SP device. The systems supports both SMA or AXOMACH connectors. It can support link rates in the range of 1.6 Р2.5 Gbps in 100Mbps increments (on-board high precision transmission clock). It can be expanded with optional I/O & Synchronization add-on board supporting triggers, flow control implementation, etc. It can be synchronised from various sources (IRIG-B, PPS), with down to 8ns accuracy / resolution.

The iSAFT WizardLink Front-End is capable of transmitting/receiving data packets over multiple WizardLink links, time stamping received packets, and capturing transmitted/received traffic to a powerful Protocol Analyser. It is based on the iSAFT graphical tool chain, and can be controlled either from the local GUI or remotely through programming APIs. It also supports connection to a Central Checkout System (CCS).

The system is fully compliant to the general EGSE requirements for space missions and relevant ECSS standards. The iSAFT WizardLink Front-End is a powerful device for the validation of on-board data networks at early stages, minimizing costs and schedule.

 

“The iSAFT WizardLink Front-End can be fully customised to support customer specific WizardLink protocols.”

 

The iSAFT WizardLink Front-End is offered as a Rackmount System.
