SOSA-Aligned WILDSTAR 3U OpenVPX Switch

The WILDSTAR 3E10 3U OpenVPX Switch from Annapolis Micro Systems is a rugged, SOSA-aligned 3U VPX board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb Ethernet. It also has front panel I/O which can be used to connect the system to external data sources.

This high-performance Switch is readily integrated into a vendor-neutral 3U VPX system, or deployed within Annapolis' proven WILD100 EcoSystem for 3U OpenVPX. The rugged board is available in industrial temperature grades, via air, conduction or air-flow-through (AFT) cooling. It is VITA 65-compliant, and aligns with the CMOSS and SOSA™ Technical Standard.
