Mercury Computer Systems introduced the Ensemble Series OpenVPX LDS6521 and the OpenVPX SBC3510 modules. The 6U LDS6521 and 3U SBC3510 are based on the second generation Intel Core processor family. Mercury’s LDS6521 and SBC3510 are available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled rugged versions. The LDS6521 supports two XMC mezzanine sites, an Intel Core i7-2715QE processor, and supports (via POET) serial RapidIO Gen 1 and Gen 2 or low latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet to the backplane/dataplane. The SBC3510 combines a single XMC mezzanine site and a dual-core Intel Core i7-2655LE processor. The modules are ideal for ISR, defense, and aerospace applications.
