Mercury Announces Flagship Model 5560 FPGA

ANDOVER, Mass., Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY,, the leader in reliable, safe, mission-critical technology for aerospace and defense ) was announced today. The model 5560 is the next generation of his 3U OpenVPX™ SOSA™ aligned co-processing board and the first to feature the AMD Xilinx Versal® HBM series with integrated high-bandwidth memory.

why it matters
Electronic warfare and spectrum processing applications used on land-, air-, and sea-based platforms must capture and process input signals and deliver output signals in extremely short timelines. Nearly peer adversaries are investing in the ability to achieve fleeting information superiority in warfare, and the United States and its allies must rely on reliable and secure processing to maintain technological superiority. I have.

Many existing defense systems use Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) as co-processors to accelerate data processing at the edge, but the data is transferred to memory located elsewhere on the board. Sometimes bottlenecks are encountered and decision-making is delayed. Mercury’s Model 5560 integrates directly with an on-chip HBM via Versal Programmable Network-On-Chip, resulting in up to 8x more bandwidth and 63% less power than systems using external memory. % decrease. Gigabytes of HBM can be accessed directly from the Versal HBM adaptive engine, significantly increasing the total amount of data that can be pushed through the system. The Model 5560 is the new flagship of Mercury’s coprocessor portfolio using HBM technology, joining the Model 5585 and 5586 modules.

Kevin Beals, vice president and general manager of Mercury Signal Solutions, said: “By working with technology leaders like AMD, we can put the most powerful American innovations into the hands of those who keep this country safe.”

“By combining a large amount of on-chip high-bandwidth memory using our proprietary 2.5D packaging technology with advanced programmable network-on-chip technology integrated into the highly specialized Model 5560 architecture, we are able to: Manuel Uhm, director of silicon marketing at AMD, said:

Process massive amounts of data at the edge with the Model 5560

  • 16 GB of Versal high-bandwidth memory
  • Versal HBM series delivers up to 820 GB/s memory bandwidth, 8x more bandwidth than DDR5 memory at 63% lower power
  • Four 100 GigE high-speed optical data pipes for an aggregate data throughput rate of 50 GB/s
  • Navigator® FPGA Design Kit (FDK) and Board Support Package (BSP) for operations control and IP development
