Hardware and software laboratory and debugging system for studying and experimental development of computing platforms of spacecraft onboard digital computer systems

Purpose

Studying and experimental development of the system is carried out with a usage of a prototype of on-board digital computing systems and ground equipment of the software debugging kit.

Functions

  • experimental study of the processor core of the product computing module
  • experimental study of the laboratory and debugging system module functioning
  • study of the mechanisms for implementation of processor instructions and their combinations in terms of logic and timing
  • study of the mechanisms for interrupting a computingl process in the computer module
  • testing of the product operating system components
  • testing of intermodular interaction in the product on the SpaceWire interface
  • testing product device drivers
  • testing of exchange drivers with external devices (SpaceWire) with the possibility of  simulating a failure.

Composition

  • computer module layout
  • external memory module layout
  • Operator’s automated workstation
  • control and monitoring unit
  • interface unit and link analyzer (SpaceWire, Router, Mk2S, STAR-Dundee)
  • DSU interface matching unit
  • operator automated workstation software
  • Engineer’s automated workstation (with its own software)

Software platform of the system

The software is developed using the QT library, the programmable logic integrated circuits (FPGAs) firmware is developed in the LabVIEW graphical programming environment.

  • providing the main interface for interaction between the user of the software of the automated workstation with the laboratory and debugging system and the prototype of the product
  • power management of the prototype product
  • generation of control commands using the system FPGAs module
  • receiving telemetric signals from the prototype product and displaying their status
  • implementation of data exchange via the SpaceWire interface
  • programme operation logging
  • generation and execution of scripts in the LUA language
  • control of parameters and generation of external interrupt signals
  • control of parameters and generation of external synchronizing frequency signals
  • working with the layout of the computer module using the debug interface

The time of the system development is 4 months. Complete set of design documentation and program documentation according to ESKD and ESPD.
