Multi-link SpaceWire Analyzer (MSA)

The Multi-link SpaceWire Analyzer (MSA) passively monitors up to four SpaceWire links. It reports statistics of all the low-level SpaceWire characters (both data and control) travelling in each direction on each link. In addition, it records waveforms of the wire signals before and after each error.

The MSA complements our Multi-link SpaceWire Recorder (MSR) by providing more detail at the low levels of the SpaceWire protocol stack - the physical layer and the link layer.

This device has been found to be exceptionally useful as an `honest broker' in resolving demarcation issues between SpaceWire devices.
