White Rabbit Switch is the central element of a White Rabbit network and
was designed as a part of the White Rabbit
project. The current
version of WRS 3.4 is
built with two fans to provide force air cooling.
shows that when the fans fail, temperature inside the WRS increases
significantly, especially the FPGA chip.
WRS-18B is a fan-less version of the WRS, specifically designed for
long-term service-less operation and originated at the
WRS-18A uses the same SCB and backplane, but intergrade two fans inside the box with modified heatsink. This version is suitable for high desity rack installation.
It is an open hardware design of an 18-ports Ethernet switch licensed
under CERN OHL 1.2. As the
design is open it can also be used as the hardware platform for other,
