OpenVPX Modules Support EW/SIGINT Applications

Mercury’s latest 3U and 6U OpenVPX modules support the development of Electronic Warfare/Signals Intelligence (EW/SIGINT) applications. The modules combine multiple technologies used in systems to detect, deceive, and defeat electronic transmissions from opposing forces in missions ranging from radar targeting suppression to counter-IED. Two 3U OpenVPX modules support EW/SIGINT functionality on platforms with limited size, weight, and power budgets. The Ensemble HCD3210 processing module combines a Virtex-6 FPGA with a Freescale dual-core 8640D general purpose processor. The Ensemble SFM3010 multi-plane switching module supports a low-latency, deterministic SRIO fabric data plane, a GigE switching control plane, and an IPMI-based system management plane. Larger 6U OpenVPX subsystems include the Echotek Series SCFE-V6-OVPX module that supports three Virtex-6 FPGAs, two VITA-57 FMC sites, and a Linux-based control processor.
