WILD100 6-Slot 3U OpenVPX Chassis – WC3B60

The rugged WILD100 6-Slot 3U OpenVPX SOSA™-Aligned Chassis (WC3B60) is a 100Gb Ethernet-enabled COTS 3U VPX Chassis, Backplane, and Chassis Manager. It is a higher density alternative to the WILD100 8-Slot 3U OpenVPX ATR (WC3A80) and is designed to handle low latency EW or radar applications.

The Switch slot features high density VITA 91 backplane connectors that double the available density to up to 128 diff pairs of Ethernet.

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

The rugged 100GbE SOSA-Aligned 3U VPX Chassis includes a thermally-controlled Chassis, Backplane, and secure Chassis Manager.

The 6-slot air-cooled unit incorporates slots for up to four conduction-cooled 3U VPX Payload Boards, 100GbE HD Switch (WP3H20), and VITA 62 power supply.

The Chassis Manager is VITA 46.11 compliant and utilizes an AMD Xilinx UltraScale+ ZU5EG MPSoC.
