Mercury Systems announces new digital transceiver for SWaP-constrained Electronic Warfare applications

March 5, 2020
The transceiver brings the latest in electronic warfare technology to smaller airborne platforms

ANDOVER, Mass., - Mercury Systems, Inc. recently announced the EnsembleSeries DCM3220 digital transceiver, a multi-channel, configurable transmit/receive module with integrated FPGA processing.

Engineered to minimize volume without reducing bandwidth and digital signal processing (DSP), the transceiver brings the latest in electronic warfare technology to smaller airborne platforms, expanding protection from highly complex radar threats. Mercury’s technology delivers performance in a smaller form factor without sacrificing ruggedness or performance including easy clocking and scalable coherency.

With increasing demand to achieve more with less power and space, the DCM3220 transceiver challenges previous limitations and sets a new standard for what is achievable on a smaller 3U platform. A base and mezzanine combination design exploits the full volume of the modular digital transceiver by incorporating advanced conduction cooling technology. When paired with a specially designed 3U microwave transceiver, the extended frequency coverage enables operation across the entire standard electronic warfare band. Additionally, the DCM3220 withstands harsh conditions despite its smaller size, meeting industry environment qualification standards for demanding environments.

Mercury is now accepting orders for the DCM3220 transceiver for delivery in the third quarter of calendar year 2020. For more information, please visit
