SOSA-aligned VPX boards are first to market with HBM

28 February 2022 Computer/Embedded Technology

Mercury Systems, a supplier of trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defence, announced the Model 5585 and Model 5586 VPX modules. Thanks to their Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ high-bandwidth memory (HBM) FPGA architecture, they offer a 20-times increase in memory bandwidth over traditional DDR4 memory and are aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) standard. This innovative design significantly boosts signal processing speeds to support size, weight and power (SWaP)-constrained, compute-intensive applications such as electronic warfare, radar, signals intelligence and big data.

When applied to mission-critical applications such as electronic countermeasures, this added processing power helps transform raw data into actionable intelligence in near-real-time, allowing customers to gain insights quickly and make fast decisions confidently.

The HBM memory chip stacking approach shortens how far data has to travel on chip, enabling smaller form-factor subsystems to achieve superior power efficiency and space savings while eliminating processing and memory bottlenecks. The Virtex UltraScale+’s combination of memory, compute and I/O capability in a single high-performance FPGA enables demanding data acquisition and signal processing applications to operate with much lower latency and reduced SWaP than was possible with previous generations of FPGAs, which needed external memory. This real-time responsiveness is key for mission-critical applications.
