DCM6112 transceiver uses commercially developed semiconductors and ruggedized military-grade packaging to minimize latency and maximize bandwidth.

ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the DCM6112 digitization RF and microwave transceiver for critical electronic warfare (EW) applications.

Using the latest commercial semiconductor technology, Mercury’s transceiver enables rapid deployment of directional EW systems necessary to counter the latest electromagnetic threats.

The DCM6112 transceiver uses the latest commercially developed semiconductor technology combined with ruggedized military-grade packaging to minimize latency and maximize bandwidth. This can enable EW systems to protect against complex threats.

The modular architecture also supports several DCM6112 modules in a scalable system.

The DCM6112 transceiver features four 12-bit analog-to-digital converter channels as well as four 12-bit digital-to-analog channels. All channels support a sample rate as fast as 3.2 gigasamples-per-second.

The real-time signal processing function consists of three Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and one Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale FPGA to enable complex application-specific algorithms. The DCM6112 complies to the OpenVPX (VITA 65) open architecture standard and is available in a front I/O or rear I/O configuration.
