New Memory Device for Advanced Mission Computing and Sensor Processing


Reading time ( words)

Mercury Systems, a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, announced volume production of its newest, high-density (HD) secure memory device, with the most capacity in the smallest form factor available. Mercury takes data-intensive processing applications to the edge by embedding 4GB of double data rate third-generation (DDR3) synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) in a compact, ruggedized package for optimal data center-grade performance in harsh environments.

“Our new 4GB HD DDR3 module is an innovative offering for our customers’ volatile memory requirements, with the largest capacity available in the smallest form factor, making it ideal for use in modern commercial avionics, missile guidance subsystems, and radar applications,” said Chris Opoczynski, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Microelectronics Secure Solutions group. “Our industry-leading HD memory modules are another proof point of our commitment to making trusted, secure, mission-critical solutions profoundly more accessible and affordable to aerospace and defense.”

Avionics, mission computing, and sensor processing subsystems are tasked with analyzing multiple streams of data simultaneously, requiring increasing amounts of system memory. Storing large volumes of memory often requires a circuit board consisting of several smaller memory blocks which are difficult to fit into size-constrained applications. With Mercury’s space-saving DDR3 device, multiple blocks of memory are consolidated into a single device smaller than a quarter, providing a 59% space savings compared to traditional 4GB DDR3 memory. By using this smaller form factor device, system architects can take full advantage of the latest edge-processing modules, bringing AI-level functionality to the harshest environments.

Mercury’s memory products are designed and manufactured in U.S.-based Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) trusted facilities, using only materials and components from highly scrutinized, trusted vendors. The company’s secure and trusted supply chain is essential for ensuring the intended operation of customers’ mission-critical processing systems.
