Mercury Systems announces InfiniBand-based product for OpenVPX high-performance embedded computing solutions

USA: Mercury Systems Inc. has expanded its product line to offer the industry's first embedded processing module using the powerful Intel 3rd generation Core i7 quad-core Ivy Bridge mobile-class processor and dual Mellanox ConnectX-3 host adapters for a total of four InfiniBand fabric connections.

The new LDS6523 (low-density server) is an industry model for open architecture high-performance embedded computing solutions, offering unparalleled data plane bandwidth with four 40Gbps fabric ports. The product can be configured to support Double Data Rate, Quad Data Rate and 40 GigE speeds. Solutions based on the LDS6523 are perfectly suited for multi-dimensional applications requiring high throughput, determinism and low latency -- such as CyberINT, IMINT, SIGINT and radar.

The LDS6523 is powered by the i7 quad-core processor running at 2.3 GHz. The processor utilizes Intel's revolutionary Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) instruction set, which doubles the width of its SIMD
engine and greatly increases floating-point processing performance. The ConnectX-3 device serves as a bridge between PCI Express 3.0 interfaces on the processor and the OpenVPX data plane, and offers configurable speed settings that can scale the data plane bandwidth. To balance higher processing density, the data plane bandwidth scales on the LDS6523 architecture to ensure that the processor is fully utilized and never starved for more data.

The LDS6523 provides two mezzanine sites for configuration with standard I/O cards -- one PMC/XMC site and one XMC site. The PCI Express architecture brings a PCIe interface to both XMC sites and
to the PMC, thus maximizing the flow of I/O into the processing subsystem. The LDS6523 enables mission security features and offers multiple I/O options and advanced system management in a VITA 65/46/48 (VPX-REDI) compliant form factor.
