FPGA Boards - 6U

Annapolis FPGA boards are engineered for superior performance and maximum bandwidth. Both Altera and Xilinx FPGAs are leveraged to offer the best FPGA technology available and to fit customer preference, design requirements and production schedule.

Following are Annapolis’ latest 6U boards. You can find all 6U boards listed below the table.

Part # FPGA Qty FPGA Type SoC Type Integrated I/O Cooling Temp

These FPGA cards paired with Annapolis OpenVPX compliant 6U backplanes enable even the most bandwidth intensive applications. With included High Speed Serial (HSS) FPGA IP cores (including 40GBASE-KR), there is up 36 GB/s of backplane bandwidth on data and expansion planes.

If I/O is required, Annapolis offers extraordinary density, bandwidth and analog conversion choices. Each 6U card has two mezzanine IO sites which can support up to four WILDSTAR Mezzanine cards as well as a QSFP+ option (on WILDSTAR 7 and WILDSTAR A5 boards) that allows for six QSFP+ transceivers per slot.

Other 6U FPGA card features include Hot Swap, On-Board dual core PowerPC, Management Processor connected to OpenVPX IPMI Management Plane, backplane user IO (LVDS, HSS, IRIG, Clocking), front panel RJ45 for PowerPC and front panel SMA (IRIG, Clocking).

  • WILDSTAR 6XB2 6U OpenVPX FPGA Processor – WB6XB2

    Winner of a "Best in Show" Award at 2018 AOC Convention!

    Two Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale+™ XCVU9P/XCVU11P/XCVU13P FPGAs with up to 29 GB of DDR4 DRAM for up to about 125 GB/s of DRAM bandwidth. Up to 8.7 million logic cells and 27,504 DSP slices per board.  Also features two WFMC+ mezzanine card with stacking support, on-board Zynq Quad ARM CPU and two FireFly 4x transceivers.

    High-bandwidth backplane connectivity is enabled by MULTIGIG RT3 interconnects, which deliver 100Gb per Fat Pipe. The new high-density RT3 boosts VPX backplane speeds to a remarkable 25 Gbaud, without sacrificing signal integrity.

    The 6XB2 is part of Annapolis’ growing Wild100 EcoSystem™, an interoperable portfolio of rugged high-performance 100Gb VPX COTS boards and systems.
