Mercury Computer Systems Announces Availability of OpenVPX Reference Design Kits
Kits promote performance migration, from lab to deployment, with a low-risk, robust, and repeatable design methodology that leverages the OpenVPX System Specification
CHELMSFORD, Mass - Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mc.com), a leading provider of embedded computing systems and software for image, sensor, and signal processing applications, announced availability of its family of OpenVPX(TM) Reference Design Kits.
The OpenVPX Reference Design Kits provide customers who are currently engaged with Mercury's Services and Systems Integration team with an engineering blueprint that significantly reduces customization, cost, and risk in the development of OpenVPX-compliant 3U and 6U payload and switch modules. The VITA-owned OpenVPX V1.0 System Specification, led by Mercury Computer Systems and co-authored with embedded computing suppliers and defense primes, is a direct response to the edict issued by a broad range of government officials and agencies for performance migration through the use of open source software and the development of open architecture systems.
The OpenVPX Reference Design Kits include CAD models, mechanical assembly information, thermal information, bills of material, and expert support from Mercury's Services and Systems Integration team. With a stable and robust reference for both air- and conduction-cooled 3U and 6U OpenVPX-based board design, board development time is expected to be reduced by approximately three to five months. The likelihood of downstream respin cycles is minimized or eliminated.
"The OpenVPX Reference Design Kits provide our customers with an innovative design methodology that is low risk, robust, and repeatable," said Darryl McKenney, Director of Engineering Services at Mercury Computer Systems. "This is particularly helpful for customers who want to migrate from lab to deployment as quickly as possible."
The OpenVPX Reference Design Kits are licensed intellectual property, with several available options that vary according to duration of product updates and support services.
