WILDSTAR SAF1 Small Form Factor Module – WSSAF1

The WILDSTAR SAF1 Small Form Factor Module is a SWaP-optimized Direct RF module that delivers high-performance processing and four channels each of 64 GSps A/D and D/A converting at 10-bit resolution.

This is the lowest latency and highest bandwidth 64 GS/s small form factor solution on the market.

Want the same Agilex Direct RF capability in a 3U VPX form factor? See the WILDSTAR 3AE1 3U OpenVPX Board.

This module may be deployed as a single standalone unit for edge applications close to the sensor and in other tight envelope man-packable environments, or dual-mounted on a 3U OpenVPX Baseboard for processing-intensive applications.

The SAF1 is designed to mate with modular RF and digital I/O cards. See the datasheet for options.

Annapolis’ powerful BSP options include 40/100GbE IP and Linux support.
