Mercury Systems Unveils Defense Industry’s First Wideband, OpenVPX Clock Module Optimized for System Flexibility

Agile, 3U module featuring three clock banks and 18 customizable, low-jitter outputs designed to maximize system performance in harsh environments

ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, today announced the EnsembleSeries CLK3002 clock generation and distribution module, the latest addition to their expanding portfolio of 3U OpenVPX products. Designed to support next-generation electronic warfare (EW) applications, the clock solution complements Mercury’s existing portfolio of low-latency, digital transceiver products. The agile clock module is factory-customizable over a wide frequency range and includes 18 clock outputs to maximize system flexibility.

Developed with a focus on system integration, the customizable module is ideal for applications that require multiple, coherent clock inputs. Additionally, the low jitter and high slew rate enable the accurate sampling required to defend against high-frequency, adversarial radar systems. Designed and manufactured in an AS9100D certified facility, the clock module is capable of providing high performance in environments ranging from land to sea to air.

“Today’s announcement further cements Mercury’s commitment to developing the pre-integrated building blocks that enable defense prime contractors to rapidly deploy advanced EW systems,” said Neal Austin, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Embedded Sensor Products group. “In the current environment of rapidly emerging threats, it is critical that our armed forces have the agility to incorporate new technologies through a modular and cost-effective design approach.”

Designed in accordance with OpenVPX architectures, the CLK3002 clock module supports easy system integration. Clock outputs are available either on the front panel or through the backplane and the frequency ranges are factory customizable up to 4GHz. With cooling options such as conduction cooled and air flow-by, this clock module is ready to support advanced systems in a range of environments.
