4Links SpaceWire

4Links test equipment reduces SpaceWire development cost and time, and increases what can be achieved within a limited budget. It is unmatched in its bug detection capabilities, its diagnostics, its instrumentation of time, and its ability to test SpaceWire networks remotely over the Internet.

Like SpaceWire itself, 4Links test equipment scales, from testing a single device up to coordinated testing of tens or hundreds of SpaceWire nodes. Easy upgrades minimise equipment costs over the life-cycle of a project. All of these help to solve problems quickly, before they incur expense and delay. Customers using 4Links test equipment have rapidly detected - and solved - problems that had long remained undetected or unsolved.

The 4Links Diagnostic SpaceWire Interface

For customers needing a second opinion on their own designs, or an evaluation of a SpaceWire product that they intend to use, 4Links offers SpaceWire consultancy that builds on the unique capabilities of our test equipment and our unique experience of developing with SpaceWire. We also have developed a range of SpaceWire IP products, from simple interfaces to complex systems-on-chip, all based on the efficient and robust SpaceWire design that has been proven by so many users of our test equipment.

4Links and its founder Paul Walker were in at the birth of SpaceWire (and IEEE 1355 that preceded it), and the company possesses a depth of knowledge unrivalled in the industry.

This summer, 4Links will exhibit at four major space-related events:

We look forward to meeting our existing customers, and everyone else with an interest in SpaceWire, at these gatherings.
