Mercury Systems has announced the EnsembleSeries™ DCM3220 digital transceiver, a multi-channel, highly configurable transmit/receive module with integrated FPGA processing. The company is accepting orders for the DCM3220 for delivery in the third calendar quarter of this year.

This versatile, low latency digital transceiver has the highest spectral processing density of any 3U OpenVPX™ module available, with easy clocking and scalable coherency according to the company.

With increasing demand to achieve more with less power and space, the DCM3220 transceiver sets a new standard for what is achievable on a smaller 3U platform. A base and mezzanine combination design exploits the full volume of the modular digital transceiver by incorporating advanced conduction cooling. When paired with a specially designed 3U microwave transceiver, the extended frequency coverage enables operation across the entire standard EW band.

Mercury’s digital transceiver technology delivers high performance in a smaller form factor, without sacrificing ruggedness or performance. Engineered to minimize volume without reducing bandwidth and digital signal processing, the transceiver brings the latest in electronic warfare (EW) technology to smaller airborne platforms, protecting them from highly complex radar threats.

The DCM3220 withstands harsh conditions, meeting industry environment qualification standards for demanding environments.

“Today’s announcement underscores our commitment to Innovation That Matters by providing rugged, mission-critical technologies for airborne, naval, and land environments. Our new transceiver is a perfect example of how we continue to make commercial technology profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense.” — Neal Austin, vice president and general manager of Mercury’s embedded sensor processing group

Mercury is bridging the gap between commercial technology and defense applications to meet the industry’s current and emerging needs.
