ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com) announced the Ensemble® 6000 Series LDS6527 6U OpenVPX single board computer (SBC) with available options for Modified Off-the-Shelf (MOTS) extreme durability configurations and BuiltSECURE technology. MOTS configurations leverage enhanced commercial components, board fabrication rules, and subsystem design techniques to withstand extreme temperature cycles over a longer period of time than standard rugged designs. For deployment at the tactical edge and export to U.S. allies, Mercury’s BuiltSECURE technology counters nation-state reverse engineering through world-class systems security engineering expertise.
Featuring an embedded-server-class 12-core Intel® Xeon® Processor D family CPU, two mezzanine sites for agile I/O customization, and 40/10 Gbit Ethernet or InfiniBand FDR10 switched communications for a high bandwidth data plane, the LDS6527 seamlessly supports open data movement middleware alongside APIs to ensure customers’ software investment is preserved. Mercury’s advanced cooling technology standards such as Air Flow-By cooling enable the use of the hotter server CPU and InfiniBand chips. In addition to traditional signal processing for radar and electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR), the LDS6527 SBC has capabilities to provide on-board data exploitation for the most demanding ISR applications as well as cognitive or adaptive algorithms for agile communications, EW, and radar systems.Modified Off-The-Shelf techniques are derived from the exacting requirements of dozens of military and avionics programs. Techniques such as the use of eutectic solder, component underfill, and conformal coating address solder joint cracking that occurs with extreme and long-term thermal cycling. More advanced approaches address issues such as gold embrittlement, or the tin whisker growth that leads to short circuits despite conformal coating. The result is higher and longer-term durability for the most demanding environments and mission profiles.“Mercury’s Modified Off-The-Shelf capabilities go well beyond the more common Military Off-The-Shelf offerings through much more stringent design rules and manufacturing techniques,” said Shaun McQuaid, Mercury’s Director of Product Management. “By applying the techniques developed over dozens of programs, Mercury can significantly reduce our customers’ technical and schedule risks while driving affordability and program velocity.”Designed and manufactured in the USA in DMEA-trusted facilities, the Ensemble Series LDS6527 SBC is available either as a standalone module or as part of a pre-integrated processing subsystem solution. Pre-integrated solutions offer a wide range of options for sensor chain processing, from RF and digitization to storage, exploitation, and mission computing.Mercury’s Ensemble Series of embedded compute building blocks has the highest performance and the broadest selection in the industry. Each open system architecture building block is engineered for best commercial performance and most rugged packaging. Their ease of pre-integration makes the Ensemble compute ecosystem the best choice for designers of dense, powerful embedded COTS and MOTS processing solutions.For more information on Mercury’s Modified Off-The-Shelf (MOTS) processes and capabilities, download the MOTS white paper at www.mrcy.com/MOTS.
