Target Market(s): including radar, communications, SIGINT, defense, medical and industrial control applications
Engineers can select from a variety of recording systems and processor boards with the industry’s most extensive line of advanced analog and digital I/O high-speed interfaces, along with exclusive development tools that help engineers get up and running quickly.
Quartz Boards & Modules:
Quartz™ is the newest family based on the Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ RFSoC FPGA. Quartz brings the performance and high density integration of the RFSoC to a wide range of application spaces with a uniquely flexible design path. Quartz is available in standard form factors like 3U VPX, or it can be deployed on custom carriers.
Designed to work with Pentek's Navigator® Design Suite tools, the combination of Quartz and Navigator offers users a streamlined path to IP development and deployment
Talon Recording Systems:
Talon® Recording Systems are high-speed recording and playback systems capable of streaming data to disk in real time. They are available in portable, rackmount and small form factor (SFF) configurations, allowing operation in a variety of environments.
Sentinel recorders add intelligent signal monitoring and detection capabilities to Talon real-time recording systems. The intuitive GUI allows users to monitor the entire spectrum or select a region of interest, while a selectable resolution bandwidth allows the user to trade sweep rate for a finer resolution and better dynamic range.

Mercury Systems announces high-speed 3U VPX synchronizer module for phase-coherent signal acquisition
SOSA aligned module accelerates design of complex beamforming and phased array applications
ANDOVER, Mass. - Nov. 30, 2021 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced the Model 5503 Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) aligned high-speed 3U VPX synchronizer module (a SOSA plug-in-card). The Model 5503 is an optimized commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solution that simplifies complex synchronization tasks for beamforming and phased-array applications used in radar, electronic warfare, and communications, maximizing reception and transmission of signals and reducing development costs and design time. The module can synchronize up to 32 channels across four RF system-on-chip (RFSoC) Quartz® modules, satisfying the growing need for synchronization in multi-element systems with high channel counts.
"Clocking and synchronization are often the hardest challenges of subsystem design," said Ken Hermanny, general manager, Mercury Microwave and Mixed Signal Assemblies. "Customers prefer a fully optimized, tested and supported solution that eliminates the risk and time typically involved with developing a proprietary design. The Model 5503 is highly integrated and optimized for RFSoC designs, allowing engineers to focus on the application itself, saving valuable development time and cost. Its SOSA aligned architecture facilitates interoperability, re-use, and rapid technology insertion, all consistent with the SOSA Consortium's approach and vision."
Four sets of programmable clock and timing signals for synchronizing, triggering and gating functions are routed to each Quartz module across the backplane, eliminating front-panel connections, while a rear transition module delivers synchronization signals to four additional modules. A conduction-cooled option is available for more rugged operating environments.
Mercury envisions, creates, and delivers innovative technology solutions purpose-built to meet their customers' most pressing high-tech needs. Visit the Model 5503 SOSA aligned synchronizer product page for more information or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
