WILDSTAR 3P20 3U OpenVPX PCIe/LVDS Switch – WP3P20

The WILDSTAR 3P20 3U OpenVPX PCIe/LVDS Switch is a rugged 3U board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of Gen4 PCIe and/or LVDS and features high density VITA 91 backplane connectors that double the available I/O density per slot.

This high-performance Switch is readily integrated into a vendor-neutral 3U VPX system, or deployed within Annapolis' proven WILD100 EcoSystem for 3U OpenVPX.

Need SOSA-aligned 100Gb Ethernet switching? See WP3E10.

This next-generation 3U Switch utilizes PCIe/LVDS multiplexers to enable run-time software control of whether backplane ports are PCIe or LVDS.

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.
