Other literature type
- Publisher: DigitalCommons@USU
SpaceWire was mentioned many times at SmallSat 2005, particularly in the sessions on standards and modularity. But there was no paper describing what SpaceWire is or the concepts behind it. This paper uses the evolution of SpaceWire over the last 40 years to describe the concepts and where they are being used, and from these suggests the opportunity that SpaceWire provides for the future.
