6U and 3U VPX signal processing boards for electronic warfare and signals intelligence introduced by Mercury
CHELMSFORD, Mass., 12 May 2011. Mercury Computer Systems in Chelmsford, Mass., is introducing 3U VPX and 6U VPX digital signal processing (DSP) boards for electronic warfare and signals intelligence (EW/SIGINT) applications. The OpenVPX computer boards combine several technologies that help detect, spoof, and defeat enemy electronic transmissions from radar to trigger signals for improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
Mercury's 6U OpenVPX modules have the Echotek Series SCFE-V6-OVPX module that supports three Virtex-6 FPGAs, two VITA-57 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) sites, and a Linux-based control processor. The FMC sites can be configured with A/D and D/A converters.
