Supports 1GbE, XAUI, 10GbE, 40GbE, 56GbE, and SDR/DDR/QDR/FDR Infiniband. It has dual 1/10GbE SFP+ front panel control plane uplinks and eight front panel data plane QSFPs. It supports up to 20 1GbE backplane control plane connections and 20 XAUI/40GbE/Infiniband data plane connections.
WILDSTAR™ OpenVPX FPGA embedded Switch boards are an important part of the Annapolis Wild40 EcoSystem™. They allow non-blocking switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 40Gb Ethernet or QDR Infiniband. They also have front panel IO which can be used to connect the system to external data sources.
