SOSA Aligned 3U VPX Agilex I-Series 100GbE FPGA Board

The WILDSTAR 3AA1 from Annapolis Micro Systems integrates Intel's powerful Agilex I-Series AGI 022 or AGI 027 FPGA. It is 100GbE-enabled, SOSA-aligned, and highly rugged and thermally-controlled.

These FPGA boards are SOSA-aligned Plug-In Cards (PIC). They include one Agilex I-Series AGI 022/027 FPGA and have five 32-bit LPDDR4 DRAM ports running up to 3733 MT/s.

Each card has one WILD FMC+ (WFMC+) next generation IO site based on FMC/FMC+ specification.  While accepting standard FMC and FMC+ cards (complies to FMC/FMC+ specification) it also allows larger form factor Annapolis WFMC+ cards for higher IO density.  WFMC+ also supports additional LVDS IO (100) for higher density ADC and DAC solutions as well as stacking (2 IO cards per site) when at least one card is WFMC+.  WFMC+ also brings the total available HSS up to 32 lanes for even more IO bandwidth. VITA 66/67 optical/RF backplane support is included.

There is also an on-board quad ARM CPU running up to 1.5 GHz which can be used for local application requirements.  It is accessible over backplane PCIe or Ethernet and provides dedicated AXI interfaces to all FPGAs.  It is also used to query board health like FPGA temperature and power. It is connected to the OpenVPX control plane via 1GbE.

The air-cooled 3AA1 is hot swappable, allowing for more system reliability. This feature is unique to Annapolis and was developed because our experience with OpenVPX systems has shown it invaluable, so a whole chassis does not need to be shutdown to remove a single board.
