ANDOVER, Mass. Oct. 25, 2018 Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the start of customer engagements for the first BuiltSECURE™ 16GB high density double data rate fourth-generation synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR4 SDRAM) in a rugged, ultra-compact 16mm x 23mm ball grid array (BGA) package. The Company’s new product was designed using a new packaging technology that doubles the number of the devices embedded in a single package without compromising performance or reliability. While delivering immediate benefits to defense prime contractors requiring DDR4 memory today, it also provides a low-risk path forward to commercializing fifth-generation (DDR5) memory devices with 5 GB/s data transfer speeds. Mercury’s new rugged DDR4 device is ideally suited to address the need for memory resident data in unmanned systems applications and real-time execution of artificial intelligence (AI).
Conventional three-dimensional (3D) packaging technologies embed multiple memory devices in a single package to meet the processing demands of space-constrained military systems. Stacking multiple devices in a single package inherently degrades the signal integrity performance, resulting in low data transfer speeds and compromised long-term reliability performance. The new packaging technology commercialized in the 16GB BuiltSECURE memory device addresses these challenges by significantly reducing crosstalk and return loss while doubling the number of devices embedded in a single package compared to the similar-sized 8GB device. This new military-hardened product supports the high-speed bus rates of today’s fastest processors and field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, with data transfer rates of up to 2666 MB/s while operating over an extended temperature range of -55 to +125 °C.

NEW HIGH SPEED RECORDER 40 GBE DATA RECORDER CAPTURES >6 GB/S OF STREAMING DATA SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES INDUSTRY CONFERENCE (SOFIC) 2018, TAMPA, Fla. (Booth #1919) – May 21, 2018 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today introduced the industry’s first two-channel 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) digital data recorder designed to address the extremely high bandwidth data capture requirements of today’s most demanding ISR applications. The new High Speed Recorder 40 GbE (HSR40) is a SWaP-optimized digital data recorder that can capture UDP or TCP/IP data from two 40 GbE interfaces at sustained rates of over 6 GB/s. The challenge of capturing wire-rate data from today’s compute intensive ISR sensor platforms puts new meaning to the old metaphor “drinking from a firehose.” Some platforms have hundreds of cameras and other sensors generating data that needs to be captured and stored. What’s more, these critical sensor systems can’t be throttled in order for the recording system to catch up with the flow of data.
“Curtiss-Wright is committed to bringing the most advanced, rugged digital data recorder solutions to our Military and Aerospace customers,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “We are proud to announce the industry’s highest performance two-channel 40 Gigabit Ethernet data recorder, the new HSR40, which delivers unprecedented data capture capability to deployed ISR applications. It breaks through data bottlenecks to record vast amounts of critical data at full wirespeed.”[Continue reading →]

PicoVNA 106 Network Analyzer from Saelig Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Pico Technology PicoVNA 106 Low-Cost Vector Network Analyzer - an economical USB-controlled, professional-grade 300kHz to 6GHz Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) with excellent performance, portability, and affordability. Despite its small size and low cost, its full-function, minimal-error, ‘Quad RX’ four-receiver architecture supports both 8- and 12-term calibration without the uncorrectable switching errors, delays, and unreliability of traditional three-receiver designs. The instrument supports convenient calibration methods such as ‘enhanced isolation correction’ and ‘unknown thru’.
The PicoVNA 106 has a dynamic range of up to 118dB at 10Hz and only 0.005dB RMS trace noise at its maximum bandwidth of 140kHz. It can gather all four S-parameters at just 190usec per frequency point, so a 500 point 2-port S2P Touchstone file (compatible with many test, math, view and EDA simulation tools) is captured in less than 1/10 sec. This performance compares with other full-function VNAs that are more than four times as expensive. The PicoVNA 106 is even cost-effective as a high-dynamic-range scalar network analyzer where phase measurements are not needed, or even as a single-port vector reflectometer. The product also includes bias-Ts for the convenient injection of a bias or test stimulus. The PicoVNA 106 software's two utilities address gain compression (P1dB) and AM to PM. Both of these use a port power sweep at each test frequency, with both measurements extracted using second-order interpolation.[Continue reading →]

Mercury Systems 4BG_DDR3_High-Density ANDOVER, Mass. - May 4, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), announced that it has launched production of a highly miniaturized DDR3 memory device perfectly suited for SWaP-sensitive military and commercial aerospace applications demanding 1600 Mb/s data transfer speed. Mercury’s precision-engineered packaging technology now compacts 4GB of double data rate third-generation synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR3 SDRAM) in a single 301 mm2 ruggedized package, setting the industry standard for the highest density DDR3 device. The new 4GB DDR3 high density secure memory product, available in x64 and x72 architectures, is manufactured at Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronic Center in Phoenix, Ariz.
Next-generation mission computing and sensor subsystem designs need additional DRAM capacity for simultaneous processing of numerous wideband data streams. While attempting to double or triple the number of discrete DRAM devices, system architects frequently encounter a scarcity of available space for integration of these components. Mercury’s newest memory product surmounts this space restriction by vertically integrating the equivalent of up to five DDR3 memory devices into one densely-packed, low-profile ball grid array (BGA) package less than 2.5 mm thick. Physical footprint reductions up to 59% are realized without compromising the benefits of high-capacity DDR3 memory. For the highest levels of reliability, the integrity of the mechanical and electrical interface to the customer’s subsystem is assured through the selection of a lead alloy solder.[Continue reading →]

In order to address the vibrant and constantly expanding maker market, SST Sensing Ltd. has partnered up with Sparkfun. Together they have developed and simple to implement solution for single point liquid detection using infra-red technology. This highly reliable and accurate solution comprises an Optomax Digital liquid level switch which is connected to an Arduino board via the TTL output and powered by its 5V source. LEDs on the Arduino can be easily programmed to indicate if the sensor is/isn’t immersed by the liquid (and thus determine if liquid level is too high/low). Using this hardware, hobbyists are provided with plenty of scope to experiment, while professional engineers have the opportunity to evaluate their prototype before moving on to a full scale design.
The Optomax devices have compact dimensions that allow them to be deployed within environments where there is only limited available space. As relatively long cabling can be supported, the sensor can be placed in close proximity to a liquid without any risk of the accompanying electronics on the Arduino being damaged. Furthermore, as this solution is of an optical rather than a mechanical nature, issues such as the build-up of deposits, jamming, or wear and tear are avoided. A long term operational life span is thereby assured. [Continue reading →]
