WILD100 13-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis – WC31DH

The WILD100 13-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis (WC31DH) is a 100Gb Ethernet-enabled COTS 19" rackmount 3U VPX Chassis, Backplane, and Chassis Manager. It is a higher density version of the WILD100 14-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis (WC31E0).

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.

The WILD100 13-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis includes a Chassis, Backplane, and secure Chassis Manager. Optional FPGA Boards, Switch, Storage, VITA blocks and cables are also available.

The WC31DH Chassis incorporates slots for up to eight conduction-cooled 3U VPX Payload Boards, two HD Switches, a Radial Clock, and two VITA 62 power supplies.

VITA 91 high-density connectors allow for a completely switched backplane. This allows for all the slots to be on the same non-blocking Ethernet switch instead of two switches chained together, and it facilitates a flexible, programmable expansion plane. This supports either 8x or 4x Gen4 PCIe, plus eight LVDS or dual 100Gb Ethernet.

The Chassis Manager is VITA 46.11/SOSA-aligned and utilizes a Xilinx UltraScale+ ZU11EG MPSoC. It is plugged directly onto rear of backplane, or is cabled.
