Mercury Systems Announces SOSA-Aligned Development Platform to Simplify the Design of Complex Subsystems

Ideal for rapid prototyping with SOSA-aligned RFSoC-based Quartz modules, saving time and money

ANDOVER, Mass., October 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY,, a leader in reliable and secure critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced ‘ hui the development platform of the Model 8257A aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture â„¢ technical standard. Featuring a single-slot 3U VPX backplane and integrated power supply, the 8257A enables engineers to accelerate the development of their sensor processing applications in an easy-to-use, time-saving SOSA aligned desktop environment and money.

“Our new Model 8257A facilitates adoption of SOSA-aligned solutions by providing an integrated development platform using a single board to accelerate initial development efforts,” said Ken Hermanny, Senior Director and General Manager, Mercury Microwave and Mixed Signal Assemblies. The optional back transition module provides access to all analog and digital signals in Mercury’s Quartz line of RF System-on-Chip (RFSoC) modules without the need for additional plug-in cards or an Ethernet switch card. to minimize system complexity and costs. during development. Prototyping in this environment helps determine system requirements and supports the creation of IP and software that can ultimately be used in the deployed SOSA aligned system. This is another example of our commitment to innovation that matters.

The Model 8257A development platform accepts 3U VPX conduction-cooled boards and uses integrated fans for air-cooling, enabling development on a fully rugged, conduction-cooled board in an office or benchtop environment. It is specially designed to accommodate Mercury Quartz® Model 5550 or 5553, Eight Channel A / D and D / A Converter 3U OpenVPX Modules based on Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale + RF System on a Chip (RFSoC), both aligned with the recently published technical standard for the SOSA 1.0 Reference Architecture. Developers can connect a laptop or desktop computer running Xilinx’s Vivado Design Suite and Mercury’s Navigator Design Suite to quickly develop, run, and debug their applications.

Mercury envisions, creates and delivers innovative technology solutions specifically designed to meet the most pressing high-tech needs of its customers. Visit the Model 8257A Development Platform product page for more information or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or [email protected]
