Mercury Computer Systems Enhances Power, Flexibility and Expands Family of Ultra-Compact Rugged Computers for ISR Applications
Company adds new SoC, FPGA, GPU and storage modules to Ensemble 1000 Series designed with the award-winning PowerBlock 50 chassis
Powerful new processing options include the Intel EP80579 SoC (system-on-chip) device, running at clock speeds up to 1.20 GHz; the Xilinx(R) Virtex(TM)-5 LX Series FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array); and the AMD M96 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), all supported by new SATA hard-disk and solid-state storage drives. These modules enhance Ensemble 1000 Series configurations which already include Freescale PowerQUICC(TM) processors and Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs, and provide a choice of solutions to accelerate customer applications.
“The innovative Ensemble 1000 systems address customer needs for advanced levels of embedded, real-time computing power in small, environmentally constrained platforms,” said
The architecture of the Ensemble 1000 Series allows flexible configurations of heterogeneous multiprocessor arrays, high-performance I/O, and local storage to meet application-specific requirements. Optimized for real-time processing, the Ensemble 1000 Series systems balance processing power with high-bandwidth interprocessor communications and external I/O bandwidth. A high-performance, any-to-any PCI Express switch fabric delivers high-throughput, non-blocking, serial switching among processing and I/O nodes. External I/O can be customized to accommodate virtually any type of digital or analog I/O.
The Ensemble 1000 Series systems are available now. For more information, visit Mercury at the UAS Payloads East Conference,
