ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing a high-density secure memory device for space-constrained military and commercial avionics applications that require trusted computing.

Mercury's product embeds 2 gigabytes of double-data-rate third-generation synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR3 SDRAM) in a compact, ruggedized ball grid array (BGA) package.

The memory device is less than 2.4-millimeters in height to enable systems designers to mount high-speed, ruggedized memory on the backside of the printed circuit board instead of the front side.

Replacing four discrete memory devices on the front side of a board with one Mercury low-profile 2-gigabyte memory on the backside saves 441 square millimeters of front-side board real estate.

Mercury manufacturers these high-density secure memory products in the company's Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA)-trusted facility. Mercury protects its electronic records with an active cyber security program modeled after the Center for Internet Security (CIS) critical security controls.
