LUNA Serial Interface Board

The LUNA is a PCI-based serial I/O card that supports both CCSDS (Conventional and Advanced Orbiting Systems) and time division multiplexed (TDM) data formats. The Luna also features a Reed-Solomon encoder/decoder to provide complete block error detection and correction for each of the CCSDS-recommended grades of service for Advanced Orbiting Systems (AOS).
