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.

ANDOVER, Mass. - Feb. 13, 2018 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the launch of its new BuiltSECURE™ TRRUST-Stor® solid-state drive (SSD) featuring high-speed serial ATA and non-volatile memory express interfaces to a host computing system. The new secure SSD product marries one terabyte of industrial-grade multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash with Mercury’s exclusive ARMOR® 4 NAND processor. With a compact, military-hardened 2.5-inch form factor enclosure, Mercury’s new design architecture sustains 1GB per second read and write operations in environmentally rugged military applications without sacrificing security.

State-of-the-art defense electronics incorporate numerous sensor systems for real-time data collection. As more of these sensor systems are deployed in military platforms, each system is also tasked with storing larger volumes of data per unit of time. These rich data streams must be stored for off-line analysis where the smallest signals of military interest must be discerned. However, continuous high-speed operation in thermally and mechanically stressful military environments places a tremendous demand on data storage devices to operate without interruption for extended periods of time. Further complicating this scenario, these systems also require the strongest encryption technology to ensure robust data protection in the event of enemy capture. [Continue reading →]

ANDOVER, Mass. - July 11, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) annoat it has extended its commercially-developed Ball Grid Array (BGA) packaging conversion technology to the new Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family, previously codenamed “Skylake-SP”. The technology enables conversion of the land grid array (LGA) package found on standard Intel Xeon server CPUs to the more rugged BGA package. The result is a truly rugged server-class processing option in an open system architecture that delivers 2-4x the performance of other product lines of Intel Xeon processors generally available in native BGA packages. Once converted to BGA, the new Intel Xeon processors can be used in a wide variety of deployed military applications on airborne, naval and ground platforms that must be able to withstand harsh temperature and vibration conditions.

“Mercury’s unique BGA conversion technology enables our customers to use the latest and most powerful Intel Xeon server chips in deployed military applications,” said Richard Jaenicke, Director of Strategic Marketing and Alliances. “The new Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family provides major increases in vector processing performance, memory bandwidth, and number of cores as compared with native BGA-based Intel Xeon solutions such as the Intel Xeon Processor D family and the Intel Xeon Processor E3 mobile family.”[Continue reading →]

Air Flow-By Cooling Technology From Mercury Systems Achieves TRL-8 - HDS6603_AFB ANDOVER, Mass. - May 16, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced that systems using ANSI/VITA 48.7 Air Flow-By™ standard cooling technology have passed flight tests in multiple manned and unmanned airborne platforms, some in their final mission configuration, thereby achieving technology readiness level 8 (TRL-8). Mercury holds a patent on one implementation approach of that standard, and has revised the licensing fees under the patent to be zero cost.

Mercury Systems developed Air Flow-By cooling technology as an improvement to its finely managed air cooling, the original air flow-through (AFT) technology it developed back in 2003. Air Flow-By cooling technology is the most efficient solution on the market to achieve a sealed environment that tolerates cooling with air that may contain contaminants. Unlike today’s AFT technology that merely adds an airflow heat exchanger to the primary side surface of a printed wiring board (PWB), Air Flow-By solutions cool both sides of the PWB by encapsulating the PWB in a heat exchanger shell such that air flows across both sides of the module for maximum cooling efficiency. The heat exchanger shell creates a sealed environment that protects against airborne contaminants, electromagnetic interference (EMI), electrostatic discharge (ESD), and provides an extra layer of physical security. Even with the increased protection and cooling capacity, Air Flow-By solutions maintain the standard 1.0-inch pitch to avoid a 33% reduction in board count found in AFT implementations that may require the module width to grow to 1.5-inch pitch. Now, Air Flow-by technology also has a cost advantage with its zero-cost licensing. [Continue reading →]

CHELMSFORD, Mass. - Feb. 15, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), announced that its Chelmsford, Mass. facility recently received the Category 1A Trusted Supplier accreditation for design capability from the U.S. Defense Department’s Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA). This expands upon the previously received Category 1A accreditation for broker, packaging, assembly, and test at Mercury’s Phoenix, Ariz. facility, and is part of Mercury’s overall strategy to be the leading commercial provider of trusted and secure sensor and mission processing subsystems. The vast majority of companies receiving DMEA accreditation are either defense prime contractors or semiconductor suppliers. Mercury is the only commercial provider of embedded computing boards and subsystems to have received DMEA accreditation to date.

The DMEA Trusted Supplier accreditation is a critical component of complying with DoD Instruction 5200.44, “Protection of Mission Critical Functions to Achieve Trusted Systems and Networks (TSN).” That DoD policy requires that “…in applicable systems, integrated circuit-related products and services shall be procured from a trusted supplier using trusted processes accredited by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) when they are custom-designed, custom-manufactured, or tailored for a specific DoD military end use.”[Continue reading →]
