SpaceWire CUBA Software

The SpaceWire CUBA Software, or SpaceWire SpaceCube Analysis Software, was developed for JAXA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. They required some software to interface with their SpaceCube devices, small cubes containing a processor and a SpaceWire interface.

The purpose of the software is to provide a command-line interface from which both raw SpaceWire packets and RMAP commands can be sent and replies received. The ability to execute command scripts containing lists of commands to be performed was also required.

The software was designed to work on both the SpaceCube and STAR-Dundee's SpaceWire-USB Brick and SpaceWire Router-USB units. This allows command files to be tested on a PC using a STAR-Dundee USB device before being executed using the SpaceCube.

The SpaceWire CUBA Software is now distributed with all STAR-Dundee SpaceWire-USB Brick and SpaceWire Router-USB devices.
