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 →]

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 →]

CHELMSFORD, Mass. - Jan 30, 2017 - Addressing the need for tighter in-vehicle security, Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), today announced the CANGuard™ security suite, a unique software solution designed to protect automotive vehicle data networks. The Company also announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with a leading automotive electronics manufacturer to enable the integration of CANGuard software into existing vehicle control units as well as future units.

Security breaches of in-vehicle onboard computers and networks are becoming more prevalent. Recent demonstrations range from remotely shutting down an engine to causing vehicle brakes to malfunction. Such attacks are enabled by the lack of built-in security for the vehicle’s controller area network (CAN) bus—the technology linking most onboard computers. CAN has been a reliable workhorse for the automotive industry for decades, yet it was developed before the Internet, so its inventors never considered malicious remote actors having access to the bus. By compromising a network-enabled onboard computer, a sophisticated hacker can gain access to other critical vehicle systems via CAN, leading to the dangerous security breaches recently reported in the media.[Continue reading →]
