WILDSTAR 3H20 3U OpenVPX Ethernet/PCIe/LVDS Switch – WP3H20

The WILDSTAR™ 3H20 3U OpenVPX Ethernet/PCIe/LVDS Switch is a rugged 3U board that provides 6.4Tb/s switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb Ethernet, Gen 4 PCIe and/or LVDS.

Add SBC capability with optional "Ice Lake D" CPU.

The 3H20 has superior connectivity. It has front panel I/O which can be used to connect the system to external data sources. And it features high density VITA 91 backplane connectors that double the available density to up to 128 diff pairs of Ethernet.

Need SOSA-aligned 100Gb Ethernet switching in 6U VPX form factor? See WP6E10.

This next-generation 3U Switch is designed for performance and security. It supports encrypted secure communication utilizing a Zynq UltraScale+ processor and logically separate data and control plane switches.

The rugged board is available in industrial temperature grades, via air, conduction or air-flow-through (AFT) cooling.

It is VITA 65-compliant, and aligns with CMOSS.
