4Links designs, manufactures, supplies and supports an extensive range of SpaceWire test equipment, network simulators, development systems and IP products.
The 4Links product range is renowned as being the most comprehensive and reliable on the market. Our Modular Satellite Development Systems enables very early integration. Thus avoiding the many problems that occur when integration is only carried out long after all the design decisions for each subsystem have been made, when it is too late to fix incompatibilities.
Our SpaceWire routing switch and codec IP products, using a patented synchronous receiver design, are implemented in a single clock domain and thus avoid all of the problems of asynchronous logic and the requirement for careful FPGA placement. This IP could be critical to the success of your next SpaceWire project!

SUPERSiC® silicon carbide telescopes, mirrors, and structures for earth observation, star tracking, laser communication, and surveillance applications. Poco Graphite’s chemical vapor conversion (CVC) process for making SUPERSiC silicon carbide allows for highly-optimized and ultra-lightweight assemblies for space flight. The CVC process is also very low cost because large-volume machining is performed on the soft carbon material before gaseous conversion changes it to hard silicon carbide. After conversion, precision machining on critical surfaces ONLY helps to keep costs to a minimum and reduce lead times. Complex, highly optimized design, lightweight, low cost, shorter lead times are all characteristics of POCO’s unique method for making silicon carbide. These crucial advantages complement very well POCO’s long history of making for-flight hardware.
