This 3U OpenVPX Baseboard is a processing monster. Powered by a XCVU9P or XCVU13P Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA, it has the most processing capability of all of our 3U VPX boards. The WILDSTAR 3XBT FPGA Processor 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 include 1 Virtex® UltraScale+™ XCVU9P/XCVU13P FPGA with GTH/GTY transceivers performing up to 32.75 Gbps. There are two 80-bit DDR4 DRAM interfaces clocked up to 2400 MT/s.

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, and is connected to the OpenVPX control plane via 1GbE.

The 3XBT 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.

Note: The 3XBT does not include a WILD FMC+ (WFMC+) IO site.
