Embedded computing based on Intel Ivy Bridge processor continue to roll out with Mercury 6U and 3U VPX products

CHELMSFORD, Mass., 24 April 2012. Mercury Computer Systems Inc. in Chelmsford, Mass., is introducing the Ensemble series 6U OpenVPX LDS6524 and the 3U OpenVPX SBC3512 embedded computing modules based on the 22 nanometer 3rd generation Intel Core processor family, which formerly has been known as Ivy Bridge.

The new Mercury computer boards are for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), electronic warfare, and similar military embedded systems that require rugged, digital signal processing capability.

The Mercury (NASDAQ: MRCY) LDS6524 uses the quad-core Intel Core i7-3615QE processor, while the SBC3512 uses the quad-core Intel Core i7-3612QE processor. Intel introduced its 3rd Generation Core, or "Ivy Bridge," processors this week. Mercury designed the OpenVPX modules to deliver improved performance per Watt.

The 3rd Generation Intel Core processor family supports a higher maximum clock speed at the same power dissipation compared to prior-generation products. Systems designers using embedded computing products from Mercury based on the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor can upgrade without expensive software recoding or system-level redesign. Performance can be controlled with software features in the Intel Core processor that reduce power dissipation during run-time.

"Higher performance combined with the Intel AVX processing capability on the four cores meets signal processing requirements as well as the computing needs of traditional, embedded real-time applications," says Matt Langman, director of marketing, Intel Intelligent Systems Group.

Mercury offers building block types to enable systems designers to configure OpenVPX systems to optimize their applications. The mobile-class LDS6524 can be combined with Mercury's server-class Intel Xeon E5-2600 family-based HDS6601 to maximize the number of processors in the OpenVPX system while also configuring the right amount of I/O for the application.

The LDS6524 and SBC3512 are available now and can be configured in air-cooled or conduction-cooled rugged versions. For more information contact Mercury Computer Systems online at www.mc.com.
