System-on-Chip Wire (SoCWire)

SoCWire has been developed by IDA, Technical University Braunschweig. It is a Network-on-Chip (NoC) approach based on the ESA SpaceWire interface standard to support dynamic reconfigurable System-on-Chip (SoC). SoCWire has been developed to provide a robust communication architecture for the harsh space environment and to support dynamic partial reconfiguration in future space applications.
SoCWire provides:
• Reconfigurable point-to-point communication
• High speed data rate
• Hot-plug ability to support dynamic reconfigurable modules
• Link error detection and recovery in hardware
• Easy implementation in dynamic partial reconfigurable systems.
• Scalable data word width (8-8192)
• Configurable Switch with 2 to 32 ports
