Mercury Systems Defense DDR4 High Density Secure Memory Device CHELMSFORD, Mass. - March 2, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), announced the latest development in its high density secure memory product line, integrating double data rate fourth-generation synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR4 SDRAM) with its SWaP-efficient packaging technology. Replacing up to eighteen industrial or commercial DDR4 devices with a single military-hardened component, Mercury delivers space savings up to 75% in a ball grid array (BGA) package with data transfer speeds up to 3200 Mb/s. Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) in Phoenix, Ariz., will produce 8GB DDR4 devices in the second half of 2017 to support next-generation customer designs. 2GB and 16GB devices are slated for production thereafter.

“Since pioneering the first DDR high density secure memory devices more than 15 years ago, our miniaturization technology has advanced with each successive generation of DDR memory,” said Iain Mackie, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Microelectronics Secure Solutions group. “Our memory solutions are optimized for density while withstanding the harshest operating environments. With today’s announcement, Defense prime contractors now have a trusted supplier of compact, military-grade DDR4 memory for high-speed, low-power, mission-critical subsystems.”[Continue reading →]

Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL) today introduced a radiation hardened 32-channel driver with integrated decoder that reduces the size, weight and power (SWaP) of satellite command and telemetry systems. The ISL72813SEH is the industry’s first high current driver to integrate the decoder, level shifter and driver array in a single monolithic IC, allowing satellite manufacturers to significantly increase system capacity and reduce solution size by up to 50%. The device offers a 4x higher density channel count compared to the nearest competitor, and the integrated level shifter eliminates several peripheral components.

The ISL72813SEH driver leverages Intersil’s proprietary silicon on insulator process, which provides single-event latch-up (SEL) robustness in heavy ion environments. The driver’s integrated decoder interfaces directly to the general purpose I/Os of FPGAs and CPUs in the satellite’s flight computer, dramatically reducing pin count compared to competitive 1-input to 1-output driver arrays. Each of the device’s 32-channels of common-emitter open-collector driver outputs can generate pulses of up to 42V and 600mA. The ISL72813SEH addresses latching relay and solenoid commanding for most satellite control functions, including redundancy management, mechanism drive enables, propulsion component relays and enables, battery management, and payload switch control. The ISL72813SEH’s low VCE saturation levels eliminate a major customer concern by reducing the overhead voltage required to drive the load. The driver’s power efficiency and high integration reduces the amount of circuitry required on the bus, allowing customers to add more spacecraft functionality and processing power.[Continue reading →]

Weybridge, UK, 1 September 2016 - TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, today announced the market introduction of its versatile TPM Series of high-performance industrial pressure transmitters. Featuring digital compensation to provide accurate, reliable pressure measurements with excellent long-term stability over a temperature range from -20° to +125 °C, the TPM Series is ideal for applications in hydraulic and pneumatic systems, and for fuel and lubricant pressure sensing, leak detection, filter testing and tank level sensing. These demanding requirements can be found in many different industries from chemical plants, mining and power generation to plastics manufacturing, water treatment plants and farming.

TPM Series transmitters deliver a 4-20mA output that is proportional to the pressure directly detected by a four-arm, active strain-gauge bridge that is formed from highly stable resistors fused to a high purity ceramic pressure-sensing element. Internally, the electronic elements comprise a primary signal processing module that utilises an ASIC-based high speed digital signal processor and a separate board that handles the interface and EMC immunity and emissions requirements. During manufacture the sensor can be individually addressed or treated as part of a batch depending on customer performance and calibration requirements. All elements of the TPM combine to ensure a ±0.1% span non-linearity, hysteresis and repeatability specification (BFSL) over the full operating temperature range together with excellent long-term stability (±0.1% span / 12 months typical).[Continue reading →]

A smart grid sensor is a small and lightweight node that serves as a detection station in a sensor network. Smart grid sensors enable the remote monitoring of equipment such as transformers and power lines, and the demand-side management of resources on an energy smart grid. Smart grid sensors are generally used to monitor weather conditions and power line temperature, which can then be used to calculate the line’s carrying capacity. This process, known as dynamic line rating, helps in increasing the power flow of existing transmission lines for power companies. A smart grid sensor can also be used within homes and businesses to increase energy efficiency. A smart grid sensor can be of four types: microcomputer, transducer, power source, and transceiver .
