Space Wire

Specification • SpaceWire is a full-duplex, point-to-point, serial data communications protocol in which the data is encoded on two differential signal pairs in each direction. This is the preferred JAS communication protocol for data rate below 200 Mbps. The electrical specifications for SpaceWire communications are described in the European Cooperation for Space...

SpaceWire Addressing

Specification • SpaceWire addresses shall follow the allowed allocation defined in the SpaceWire standard. Only logical addresses will be used for router and endpoint addresses which means they must be in the range of 0x20-0xFE. JAS applications shall use SpaceWire regional addressing in conjunction with header deletion within the SpaceWire routers. Two...

SpaceWire Interconnect

Profile • SpaceWire is a communication network designed to connect sensors, processing units, memory devices and telemetry/telecommand subsystems together within a spacecraft. It provides moderate-rate (2 to 200 Mbps), bi-directional, full-duplex, data links. Application, control, and time information is sent along a SpaceWire link in discrete packets. A SpaceWire network is comprised...

SpaceWire Logical

Profile • The SpaceWire standard defines packets and protocol identifiers. The SpaceWire Logical Layer has the flexibility to utilize standard or customized protocols. There are two classes of protocols available to JAS applications: Memory access protocols – access and control memory devices that are located on remote nodes within a network Messaging...

SpaceWire Protocol Identifiers

Specification • The standard reserves protocol identifiers in the range of 1 to 239. Protocol identifiers in the range of 240-255 can be assigned by projects. The protocol identifiers ranging from 240-250 shall be reserved for JAS protocols. A list of the protocols used by JAS is shown in the table below....

Subnetwork Services

Profile • Subnetwork services provide applications with a standardized interface to network communication resources regardless of the underlying data link. These services provide applications with a single application programming interface (API) and determine the proper network protocol and data link to use. This is accomplished through parameters provided in the API calls...

Subnetwork Services

Specification • JAS Subnetwork Services provide a set of well-defined interfaces for applications to communicate across a network. They provide a layer of abstraction between the applications and the network protocols and data links, thereby allowing applications to be more portable and reusable. The services use a combination of a standard application...

Synchronization Service

Profile • The Synchronization Service provides the capability to send time and synchronization events to remote applications across the network. The Synchronization Service is based on the CCSDS SOIS Synchronization Service. The Synchronization Service works in conjunction with protocols to communicate time and time-based event messages to all nodes in the payload....

Synchronization Service

Specification • The following diagram shows how the JAS Synchronization Service fits into the overall communication stack. The Synchronization Service provides a standard interface to applications for sending and receiving time and event messages across a communication link. This service is typically used when the data link supports the ability to send...

System Monitor and Communication Profile

Other • The System Monitoring and Communication (SMAC) Profile defines a subsystem intended for integration into JAS nodes to provide control, communication, and state-of-health (SOH) monitoring capabilities. The SMAC subsystem consists of a single, common design applied to all nodes which provides a consistent interface to the system controller regardless of the...

Thermal Loads

Specification • Yield and ultimate thermal loads for hardware subject to thermal tests shall be calculated by either Alternate A or Alternate B, as defined below, whichever produces the maximum load. These thermal loads are not to be used for fatigue. Alternate A: Yield thermal load (YTL) = Predicted thermal load (PTL)...

Time Distribution

Other • The JAS architecture does not specify a time distribution scheme nor limit system implementations from incorporating their own methods. Two possible time distribution schemes are presented as examples: Fully Connected A fully connected distribution provides a direct interface between each node and the host. Fully connected time distribution is more...
