Chassis and Backplanes

Annapolis was the first company to bring 40Gb bandwidth to OpenVPX with our line of rugged COTS backplanes, chassis and payload cards that are fully designed, qualified and tested for 40Gb bandwidths. The Wild40 EcoSystem™ for OpenVPX chassis includes both switched and mesh backplane architectures and has already been extensively deployed around the world.

NOTE: Annapolis is currently architecting a next-generation 100Gb bandwidth EcoSystem that will debut in 2017. Contact Us to discuss what this increased capacity can do for you.

Every Wild40 EcoSystem chassis includes a Chassis Monitoring system for fan control and chassis health monitoring with front panel display as well as front panel power switch, Ethernet, VPX System reset button and VPX Maskable Reset button.
