WILDSTAR 2-Channel Direct RF 3U OpenVPX Module – WS3XV1

The WILDSTAR™ 2-Channel Direct RF 3U OpenVPX Module is an assembled solution that is 100GbE-enabled, SOSA-aligned, and highly rugged and thermally-controlled. Directly digitize and process wideband signals with this high-performance 64 GSps Direct RF Module that includes Versal Premium processing.

Need the same SOSA-alignment and Versal processing and 100GbE capability in a 6U VPX form factor? See the WILDSTAR 6XV2 6U OpenVPX Board.

These FPGA modules are SOSA-aligned Plug-In Cards (PIC). They package the WB3XV1 Processor Baseboard and WHDMF1 ADC/DAC Mezzanine in one 3U VPX slot. High-performance digitizing and processing are powered by Versal™ Premium FPGA and a mezz-mounted 64 GSps Direct RF Transceiver.

VITA 66/67 optical/RF backplane support is included.
