WILDSTAR A10 2PE for 6U OpenVPX – WB6A12

WILDSTAR™ A10 2PE for 6U OpenVPX boards include two Intel Arria 10® GX900, GX1150, GT1150 FPGAs with High Speed Serial connections performing up to 15 Gbps.  There is also an on-board dual ARM Cortex-A9 Processor running up to 925 MHz which can be used for local application requirements without using PCIe bandwidth.

High Performance Rugged Xilinx UltraScale FPGA Board

Each card has two WILD FMC+ (WFMC+) next generation IO sites based on FMC/FMC+ specification.  While accepting standard FMC and FMC+ cards it also allows larger form factor Annapolis WFMC+ cards for higher IO density.  WFMC+ supports 32 HSS and 100 LVDS IO for higher density ADC and DAC solutions as well as stacking two IO cards per site.
