WILDSTAR 6B10 6U OpenVPX InfiniBand Switch – WP6B10

WILDSTAR 6B10 6U OpenVPX InfiniBand Switch is a rugged 6U board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb EDR Infiniband. It also has front panel I/O which can be used to connect the system to external data sources.

This high-performance Switch is readily integrated into a vendor-neutral 6U VPX system, or deployed within Annapolis' proven WILD100 EcoSystem for 6U OpenVPX.

This next-generation 6U Switch supports up to 27 SDR/DDR/QDR/FDR/EDR InfiniBand ports with industry-leading, true cut-through latency.

It supports 1/10/25/40/100Gb Ethernet, with 7 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to VITA 66 and 4 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to the front panel.

The rugged board is available in industrial temperature grades, via air, conduction or liquid cooling.

It is VITA 65-compliant, and aligns with the SOSA™ Technical Standard.
