To complement their SOSA-Aligned Ecosystem of FPGA boards, chassis, switches and backplanes, Annapolis Micro Systems has introduced a new VITA 46.11-aligned WILD™ VPX Chassis Manager (WABGM0). It enables critical chassis control, maintenance, and security functions, was developed in alignment with the SOSA™ Technical Standard, and offers commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) availability.

“This is a highly-integrated module supporting many functions,” said Jay Grandin, Annapolis Micro Systems VP Product Development. “It provides access to plug in card (PIC) JTAG and Maintenance ports, CLK1 usage via on-board Zynq FPGA, network functions, and some optional advanced security functions.”

For security, the Chassis Manager implements a Xilinx UltraScale+ Zynq ZU5EG MPSoC and latest Microsemi PolarFire FPGA, which can be end-user modified with purchase of the optional Board Support Package (BSP). Other Chassis Manager features include security signal interfaces, MIL-STD-1553 support and an additional storage flash.

The Chassis Manager supports the SOSA management interface for all the cards in the chassis, allowing for controlled power-on/off of VPX cards and controlling main 12V power to the chassis. All this is accomplished locally, or remotely via ethernet. The management interface also allows out-of-band monitoring of board health and statistics like board temperature and power.

The WABGM0 is designed and manufactured in USA. Watch it operate in this 100GbE SOSA-aligned Demo.
