VDC Names Mercury Computer Top Digital Signal Processing Supplier

3/30/2004 - Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) was named the top supplier of merchant digital signal processing (DSP) boards in real-time and embedded applications in a new market study by Venture Development Corporation (VDC). VDC, an independent technology market research and strategy firm, conducted a comprehensive analysis of the global markets for merchant DSP boards and the processing silicon used on these boards.

"We are delighted to be recognized by VDC as the global leader in digital signal processing technology," said Richard Jaenicke, director of product management, Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. "Our ranking at the top of VDC’s study reflects Mercury’s focus on innovation and customer success. We believe our application expertise and system-level approach to solving our customers’ most difficult signal processing challenges has fueled our success, and we look forward to continued leadership in the DSP industry."

In the study titled "Digital Signal Processing (DSP): Global Market Demand Analysis," VDC concludes the highest growth market for digital signal processing is the military, and the fastest growing technology is products that utilize FPGAs alone and in conjunction with other processors. Mercury’s announcements earlier this quarter of the RACE++® Series MCJ6 FCN (FPGA compute node) boards and PowerPC 7447 daughtercards highlight the latest combination of FPGA and PowerPC® solutions in RACE++ systems.

VDC developed the report, released this month, based on sales by leaders in merchant DSP boards for real-time and embedded applications. An online survey was conducted with OEMs, systems integrators and end users who purchase DSP boards. In addition, VDC performed rigorous analysis on data obtained through interviews and surveys.
