New 3U and 6U OpenVPX™ modules from Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, MA) support Electronic Warfare/Signals In telligence (EW/SIGINT) applications. The modules de tect electronic transmissions from opposing forces in missions ranging from radar targeting suppression to counter-IED. The modules can be configured with radio frequency (RF) tuners, or into advanced Application Ready Subsystems™ (ARS™) as part of larger EW/SIGINT systems.
The larger 6U OpenVPX subsystems are enhanced with the Echotek® Series SCFE-V6-OVPX module, which supports three Virtex- 6 FPGAs, two VITA-57 FMC sites, and a Linux-based control processor. The FMC sites can be configured with A/D and D/A converters, supporting a range of IF bandwidths and channel densities. Multiple 6U modules can be configured in scalable subsystems supporting multichannel coherency.
Two new 3U OpenVPX modules support EW/SIGINT functionality. The Ensemble HCD3210 processing module combines a Virtex-6 FPGA with a Freescale™ dual-core 8640D general-purpose processor. An industry- standard XMC site enables I/O directly into the module. The Ensemble SFM3010, a multi-plane switching module, supports a lowlatency, deterministic SRIO fabric data plane, a GigE switching control plane, and an IPMI-based system management plane.
