CHELMSFORD, Mass., September 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:MRCY), a best-of-breed provider of commercially-developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced the Ensemble ® HDS6602 High Density Server, the embedded computing industry's most powerful 6U OpenVPX processing module. The Company expects the HDS6602 to be the only embedded, dual Intel ® Xeon ® processor E5-2600 v2-based processing module able to deliver peak Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) performance of 608 GLOPS. Using Mellanox's ConnectX ®-3 technology to exploit InfiniBand or Ethernet as a high-performance interconnect in OpenVPX, the HDS6602 is well suited to meet the processing demands of the most complex Radar and other massively intensive embedded processing applications.

Powered by two 10-core Intel ® Xeon ® processors E5-2648L v2 (codenamed Ivy Bridge-EP) running at 1.9 GHz and supporting up to 128 GB memory, this 6U addition to Mercury's Ensemble series of sensor chain building blocks packs the most processing power into a standard, 1-inch pitch OpenVPX module. The leverage of Mercury and commercial technologies produces an affordable and efficient Size, Weight and Power to Cost (SWaP-C) OpenVPX processing engine for low risk technology adoption and fast deployment. Compatibility with prevailing software and industry standards, delivers a processing solution that is smooth and expedient to integrate. As localized processing power and interoperability become ever more critical, from Radar to on-platform processing and Big Data analytics, the HDS6602's processing density, rugged reliability and affordability offers new technical and performance possibilities.

"Mercury has unique domain experience deploying Intel's server-class technology and is pivotal to many of today's high-end, in-theatre solutions," said Gregg Ogden, Mercury Systems' Director of Solutions and Product Marketing. "Imagine the computing performance and possibilities of the latest 64-bit, high-end, data-center server blades packaged in a rugged OpenVPX module. The HDS6602 is just that: an intensely powerful, open standards, open fabric server blade for deployment in harsh environments. If your radar or other applications require awesome processing power, even in rugged environments, this is the resource to have."
