Re: What's your bus?


A common feature of the ones you mention is that they are not buses,
they use switch fabric.

So does SpaceWire, a derivative from IEEE 1355, that is simpler and more
flexible than any of those you mention. It was way ahead of its time,
but the plethora of new standards, all of which follow it and all of
which are more complicated, just show that its time will come.

You can reach most of the information about SpaceWire and IEEE 1355 from
our web site:
