Mercury Systems Unveils Defense Industry’s First Digital Transceiver Optimized for System Security Engineering using BuiltSECURE Technology

Ultra-low latency OpenVPX digital transceiver designed for advanced signal processing applications in high threat environments
EnsembleSeries™ DCM6111 6U VPX digital transceiver, the latest addition to its portfolio of digital processing solutions. The new transceiver seamlessly incorporates the Company’s BuiltSECURE™ technology, thereby enabling security architects to rapidly develop and deploy highly customized system security engineering (SSE) to detect and mitigate adversarial attacks. Designed in accordance with OpenVPX™ standards at Mercury’s AS9100D-certified facility in Huntsville, Ala., the new product is the ideal processing solution for advanced electronic warfare applications operating in harsh and hostile environments.

The DCM6111 transceiver incorporates advanced, high-speed analog to digital converter (ADC) and digital to analog converter (DAC) circuitry while providing multichannel, ultra-low latency performance. By leveraging OpenVPX architectures, Mercury delivers an agile, cost-effective upgrade path enabling military forces to maintain a dominant position on the electromagnetic battlefield. Recognizing that these advanced capabilities may be exposed to adversarial reverse engineering attempts while deployed in hostile environments, Mercury has preconfigured its BuiltSECURE technology into the new transceiver. This built-in SSE capability enables turnkey or personalized security solutions to be quickly configured and deployed to enable mission success.

“Today’s product announcement exemplifies how Mercury delivers value to defense prime contractors by skillfully blending our deep domain expertise in analog and digital integration with agile security architectures,” said Charlie Hudnall, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Embedded Sensor Products group. “Our military forces around the globe can confidently rely on Mercury’s broad portfolio of future-proof electronic warfare solutions to protect our warfighters and our national interests.”

The digital transceiver achieves low-latency sampling with two 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADC) operating at 2.5 gigasamples per second (GSPS). The transmit side includes two 12-bit digital-to-analog converters (DAC) at 3.0 GSPS. This flexible architecture enables multichannel operation and customization with a maximum instantaneous bandwidth (IBW) of 1GHz. Three powerful Kintex® Ultrascale™ field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) process the digitized signal and are supported with 16GB of DDR4 memory. To facilitate system integration, Mercury’s digital transceiver products include robust board support software and firmware to allow customers to focus on their application development.

Mercury’s application engineering team is ready to assist customers with the integration of the new digital transceiver into their next electronic warfare system requiring security and affordable upgradeability.
