4Links Open Sources 400Mbps SpaceWire Codec

4Links have decided to remove their patents on SpaceWire oversampling and opensource (BSD License) its base level Codec. This will enable anyone to exploit the full potential of SpaceWire for their projects. The Codec is written in VHDL and supplied with example simulation and synthesis scripts to get the user started with minimal effort. By using an oversampling approach, the Code is synthesis friendly.
