Mercury Computer Systems Announces Industry’s Highest Performing Power Architecture®-based OpenVPX Module

Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mc.com), a trusted provider of commercially developed application-ready ISR and EW subsystems for defense prime contractors, announced the Ensemble ® Series 6U OpenVPX HCD6210 rugged compute blade based on the Freescale ® T4240 QorIQ AMP Power Architecture ®. Utilizing two of the new Freescale T4240 QorIQ AMP processors, the HCD6210 blade has a total of 24 cores/48 threads, each core with an AltiVec ® single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) engine for high-performance signal processing support. Systems based on the HCD6210 can scale from 1 to 16 boards, enabling new levels of subsystem performance in radar, EO/IR and EW applications.

For the past decade, Mercury has delivered Power Architecture/AltiVec-based products combined with the industry’s highest performing scientific algorithm libraries (SAL) for applications such as medical imaging, seismic analysis, airborne radar and defense applications. Because the HCD6210 runs SAL-based software unchanged, a significant amount of the customer’s software investment is preserved. Additionally, with a sixfold increase in the number of cores per device, what previously required 4–6 boards now requires only a single 6U OpenVPX slot. With advancements in chip manufacturing technologies, this level of performance can now be delivered in a low-power, industrial-grade processor for applications in harsh, size, weight and power-constrained (SWaP) environments.

“With the enormous budget pressures in the defense industry, more and more prime contractors are looking to upgrade existing systems with minimal change and cost. The HCD6210 compute blade provides a sixfold increase in processing capability while maintaining software library compatibility,” said Steve Patterson, Vice President of Product Management at Mercury Computer Systems. “With its well-balanced computational performance and IO capability, the performance is equally impressive for small, single-slot OpenVPX systems as it is for the large, scaled-up multi-board systems for which Mercury is known.”
