WILDSTAR 6E10 6U OpenVPX Switch – WP6E10

WILDSTAR 6E10 6U OpenVPX Switch is a rugged 6U board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb Ethernet. 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 features up to 26 40/100Gb Ethernet ports.

The Data Plane Switch uses a Zynq A53 ARM processor and supports 10/40/100GbE to the backplane, and 1/10/25/40/50/100GbE to optical interfaces. The Control Plane Switch uses a dual Core ARM-7 processor and supports 1/10GbE to the backplane, and 1/10/40GbE to optical interfaces. VITA 66 support is optional.

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.
