Cobham Gaisler AB provides IP cores and supporting development tools for embedded processors based on the SPARC architecture. We specialize in digital hardware design for both commercial and aerospace applications


Cobham Gaisler provides several SpaceWire cores: GRSPW and GRSPW2, GRSPWROUTER and GRSPW_CODEC.

The GRSPW and GRSPW2 cores implement a SpaceWire link controller with AHB interface and RMAP command handler. GRSPW2 is based on the GRSPW and contains a number of improvements and added features.

The GRSPWROUTER core implements a SpaceWire router switch with the possibility for different types of ports, covering SpaceWire, AMBA AHB and FIFO ports.

The GRSPW_CODEC is a standalone version of the codec used in the GRSPW2.

More information about each core can be found on their respective pages.
