3U Chassis and Backplanes

The Annapolis WILD40/100 EcoSystem includes a ruggedized 3U OpenVPX chassis with a backplane specifically designed for 40/100Gb signaling. This 3U OpenVPX chassis includes both a mesh and daisy chained backplane architecture for direct board-to-board communication.

An accompanying WILD Chassis Manager is a secure VITA 46.11/SOSA-aligned device that can be plugged directly into a backplane or used with an OpenVPX carrier to plug into a backplane as a payload card.

  • WILD100 13-Slot Liquid-Cooled 3U OpenVPX Chassis – WC34D0

    The rugged WILD100 13-Slot Liquid-Cooled 3U OpenVPX Chassis (WC34D0) is a 100Gb Ethernet-enabled COTS 3U VPX Chassis, Backplane, and Chassis Manager. It is a more rugged version of the WILD100 13-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis (WC31DH).

    It includes two HD Switch slots that feature high-density VITA 91 connectors with double the available density, up to 64 lanes of Ethernet or PCIe or 128 LVDS pairs. The two HD switch slots allow the WC31DH Chassis to handle all Data and Control Plane Ethernet via one slot, with the second switch slot dedicated to the expansion plane – Ethernet, PCIe and/or LVDS. This is ideal for low latency jamming or radar applications.

    It is VITA 65 compliant, SOSA-aligned, and designed and built in USA.
