Echotek SCFE-V6-OVPX, Ensemble HCD3210 and SFM3010 OpenVPX Modules

Mercury Computer Systems introduced 3U and 6U OpenVPX modules for Electronic Warfare/Signals Intelligence (EW/SIGINT) applications. The Ensemble HCD3210 processing module features a Virtex-6 FPGA with a Freescale dual-core 8640D general purpose processor. The Ensemble SFM3010 includes a low-latency, deterministic SRIO fabric data plane, a GigE switching control plane and an IPMI-based system management plane. The Echotek Series SCFE-V6-OVPX module features three Virtex-6 FPGAs, two industry standard VITA-57 FMC sites and a Linux-based control processor.
