Mercury Mission Systems has performed extensive analysis of the BuiltSAFE™ Multi-Core Renderer solution on a variety of target architectures. For the majority of avionics applications, Multi-Core Renderer on its own is sufficient to achieve the performance requirements of Primary Flight Displays, EFIS, and other high criticality applications.
There are some applications, however, that require a higher level of performance. For these we offer an innovative, comprehensive solution: Mercury’s FPGA IP Core Graphics Accelerator. The innovative, hybrid solution eliminates the necessity of introducing a GPU, while offering FPGA IP core graphics acceleration for “bottleneck” operations and offers industry leading rasterization and screen control functionality, along with the DO-254 evidence required for use within DAL A applications.
Mercury Mission Systems' employees have influenced the activities of several industry standard-setting bodies through development of graphics and portability specifications. We leverage our vendor partnerships to accommodate changes in embedded computing technologies, during our products' life-cycles. Our close ties with hardware partners, as well as RTOS vendors, allow us to begin accommodating the next generation of their product lines long before they are introduced to the market.
