WILDSTAR 3XB9 3U OpenVPX FPGA Processor – WB3XB9
The WILDSTAR 3XB9 is a processing powerhouse. Choose from one of two available Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs, up to the brawny XCVU13P. The 3XB9 is 100GbE-enabled, SOSA-aligned, and highly rugged and thermally-controlled.
Need the same SOSA-alignment and 100GbE capability in a 6U VPX form factor? See the WILDSTAR 6XB2 6U OpenVPX Board.
These FPGA boards are SOSA-aligned Plug-In Cards (PIC). They include one Virtex® UltraScale+™ XCVU9P/XCVU13P FPGA with GTH/GTY transceivers performing up to 32.75 Gbps. There are two 80-bit DDR4 DRAM ports running up to 2400 MT/s.
If front panel and/or backplane IO is required, Annapolis offers extraordinary density, bandwidth and analog conversion choices. Each card has one WILD FMC+ (WFMC+) next generation IO site based on FMC/FMC+ specification. While accepting standard FMC and FMC+ cards (complies to FMC/FMC+ specification) it also allows larger form factor Annapolis WFMC+ cards for higher IO density. WFMC+ also supports additional LVDS IO (100) for higher density ADC and DAC solutions as well as stacking (2 IO cards per site) when at least one card is WFMC+. WFMC+ also brings the total available HSS up to 32 lanes for even more IO bandwidth. VITA 66/67 optical/RF backplane support is included.
There is also an on-board quad ARM CPU running up to 1.2 GHz which can be used for local application requirements. It is accessible over backplane PCIe or Ethernet and provides dedicated AXI interfaces to all FPGAs. It is also used to query board health like FPGA temperature and power. It is connected to the OpenVPX control plane via 1GbE.
The air-cooled 3XB9 is hot swappable, allowing for more system reliability. This feature is unique to Annapolis and was developed because our experience with OpenVPX systems has shown it invaluable, so a whole chassis does not need to be shutdown to remove a single board.
