ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the Ensemble 4000 series SBC4510 Intel Xeon E3 v6-based VME single-board computer for existing VME-based sensor-processing embedded computing applications that supply 50 Watts or less.

The computer board will enable technology insertion of modern high-performance and system-security engineering solutions with system security engineering capabilities -- a key enabler for foreign military sales and direct commercial sales.

The single-slot computer board is compatible with legacy VME64 systems, and supports Linux and VxWorks operating systems It offers a secure hypervisor to enable legacy applications to run in their own containers independently of the underlying system software and hardware.

Several applications can run simultaneously in a virtualized environment to take advantage of the increase in performance of the Intel Xeon processor.

"Customers with deployed legacy systems have been looking for security and performance upgrade options for VME computer boards in particular," ways Shaun McQuaid, director of product management at Mercury.

Based on an open-systems architecture, the SBC4510 module can help reduce risk of diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages. Mercury's managed supply chain results in products that have 10-plus years of supply longevity, with optional obsolescence management programs available.

Mercury's DMEA-certified facilities minimize supply chain risk and ensure that system integrators can meet DoD instruction 5200.44, "Protection of Mission Critical Functions to Achieve Trusted Systems and Networks."

The computer board features a PMC/XMC mezzanine site for I/O expansion and will be available in air-cooled or conduction cooled versions at various levels of ruggedization.
