Mercury Systems Announces Highest Fidelity, Multi-Channel Digitizing OpenVPX
Transceiver for Capture & Command of the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Industry-Leading Wide Bandwidth, Synchronized and Coherent Scalable
Transceiver Based on Open Standards, Ideal for Complex EW, ELINT and Radar

CHELMSFORD, Mass., August 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MRCY), a best-of-breed provider of commercially developed, open sensor
and Big Data processing systems for critical commercial, defense and
intelligence applications, has added further industry-leading capability to
its portfolio of subsystem building blocks with the introduction of the
DCM-2R2300-2T2300-OVPX FMC transceiver. The transceiver delivers coherent
operation, with more than 1GHz of full instantaneous bandwidth and exceptional

With best-in-class features and performance for complex Electronic Warfare
(EW), Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and radar applications, the transceiver
provides excellent multichannel, high-resolution, synchronized and coherent
signal processing.

"The DCM-2R2300-2T2300-OVPX consists of an analog FMC and a 6U based OpenVPX™
carrier card. This modular approach provides a rugged transceiver with
exceptional resolution, bandwidth and coherency making this module a
game-changer for high-end ELINT, EW and radar applications," said Lorne
Graves, Technical Director of Mercury's Embedded Sensor Products Group. "This
module provides a highly versatile and programmable architecture to meet the
demanding needs of today's warfighters and the adaptability to counter future
threats as they evolve."

The transceiver is a configurable building block within the sensor chain,
capable of instantaneously capturing signals over a 1 GHz range, with two,
high resolution 12bit input and two 14bit output channels. The key to
uncompromising fidelity is effective full wave-form capture through the whole
frequency range. The transceiver achieves this performance through skillful
integration of pioneering PCB design rules, advanced filtering,
automatic-gain-control and precise clock reference technologies. When paired
with a Mercury FPGA carrier, the analog FMC provides a digital processing
interface for the high fidelity data conversion to enable high bandwidth,
low-latency switched fabric communication with other subsystem resources.

The transceiver functional blocks are implemented by Mercury's EchoCore^™ IP
suite that delivers elegant streaming data algorithms to encompass fundamental
signal selection and filtering functions. EchoCore standardizes cores with
basic DSP/FPGA functionality and testing, reducing development time, while
increasing solution quality. Modules may be integrated forming coherent,
synchronized subsystems using the EchoCore algorithm processing library.
Immediately available and supplied as standalone units or as part of a sensor
processing solution, these modules are fully tested and their results
documented. All links and diagnostics are verified and performed at the
factory and each transceiver is ready for application porting right out of the
