High performance SOSA and CMOSS aligned embedded computing chassis introduced by Annapolis Microsystems

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Annapolis Micro Systems Inc. of Annapolis, Md., announces the rugged WILD100 OpenVPX eight-slot SOSA-aligned three-quarter ATR chassis (WC3A80) and two WILD100 19-inch rackmount 3U OpenVPX chassis (WC31E0 & WC31DH).

These embedded computing products are for advanced high-performance computing; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; and multifunctional electronic warfare applications such as phased array radar, cyber security network processing, high-frequency digital storage; beamforming; sensor processing; wireless communications; and radar signal processing.

The chassis belong to the WILD100 family of Annapolis chassis, backplanes and chassis managers, most of which were developed in accordance with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) technical standard and support C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS). .

The WILD100 products offer line rates of 25 gigabits per second on data and extension planes over 5/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet; SDR/DDR/QDR/EDR Infiniband; Gen 3/4 PCI Express; and custom protocols up to 25 gigabits per second per lane.

All three chassis contain a secure WILD chassis manager (WABGM0 or WABGM2). The chassis managers are SOSA aligned and VITA 46.11 compliant and are powered by a Xilinx UltraScale+ ZU5EG or ZU11EG MPSoC and Microsemi PolarFire MPF200T FPGA for security functions. Multiple security and advanced features are available; Contact factory for details.

The WC3A80 ATR chassis is a top-loading, forced-air and conduction-cooled package with eight 3U OpenVPX slots: four primary RF/compute intensive payload slots with 14.6.11 profile; one I/O intensive card slot with 14.2.16 profile; one 40/100 Gigabit switch slot with 14.4.14 profile; a timing slot with 14.9.2 profile; and a VITA 62 power supply slot for 12 volts only.

The front-loading, conduction-cooled WC31E0 (in production) and WC31DH (in development) have 14 and 13 3U OpenVPX slots, respectively. Both include: eight primary RF/compute intensive payload slots with 14.6.11 profile; a timing slot with 14.9.2 profile; and two 12-volt Vita-62-only power supply slots.

The WC31E0 chassis contains one I/O intensive board slot with 14.2.16 profile; and two 40/100 Gigabit switch slots with 14.4.14 profile. The WC31DH chassis also includes two HD switch slots with high-density VITA 91 connectors and up to 64 Ethernet, PCI Express, or 128 LVDS pairs.
