ARQUIMEA leads a European R&D project for the future Space Ethernet communications

ARQUIMEA has started a new H2020 project called SEPHY (Space Ethernet PHYsical Layer Transceiver) which main objective is the development of a radiation hardened 10/100-Base-T Ethernet physical layer transceiver for the space market in line with the trend towards Ethernet based communications. SEPHY will become standard solution in future international space applications for launchers, satellites and spacecraft. The project results are fully in line with Ethernet and space-validated Time-Triggered Ethernet for deterministic real-time communication and enhanced Quality of Service based on the Ethernet standard.

The team involved in the project and the consortium roles are:

  • ARQUIMEA: Coordination, integration, mixed signal design and support to commercialization
  • THALES ALENIA SPACE ESPAÑA: Testing and user requirements
  • UNIVERSIDAD ANTONIO DE NEBRIJA: System level verification, signal processing, conformance and standardization
  • IHP: Digital design
  • ATMEL: Backend support, digital library supplier, fabrication, packaging and commercialization.
  • TTTECH: Final user requirements, TTEthernet testing, Dissemination and support to commercialization


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 640243
