Mercury Systems Announces Defense Industry’s First Military-Grade DDR4 Devices in High-Volume Production

DMEA-accredited facility in Phoenix, Ariz. successfully completes qualification of DDR4 memory devices critical for next-generation military computing systems

ANDOVER, Mass., Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY,, announced the first volume production shipment of BuiltSECURE™ high density double data rate fourth-generation synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR4 SDRAM) to a leading defense prime contractor. The devices will be integrated into the radar warning receiver of a Command, Control, Communications, Computer and Intelligence (C4I) system. The rugged devices embed 8GB of high-speed secure DDR4 into an ultra-compact ball grid array (BGA) package optimized for reliability in SWaP-constrained, processing-intense military environments.

The Company’s low-profile DDR4 devices are ideal for backside printed circuit board placement, providing system architects valuable real estate to incorporate additional on-board functionality. Advanced three-dimensional packaging technology delivers military-hardened, high-density devices supporting today’s fastest processors and field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices with data transfer rates of up to 2666 MB/s while operating over an extended temperature range of -55 to +125 °C without sacrificing performance.

“For almost two decades, our miniaturization technology has transformed DDR memory into ultra-SWaP optimized devices that consistently deliver performance even in the toughest military environments,” said Iain Mackie, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Microelectronics Secure Solutions group. “Defense prime contractors can trust Mercury for assured supply continuity of high-speed DDR4 memory for next-generation military computing systems where a split second of latency may determine mission success.”

The Company's entire portfolio of military-grade, secure memory devices are designed and manufactured in a Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA)-accredited facility for design, packaging, test and broker services. All critical components are acquired from carefully selected supply chain partners with manufacturing sites located within the United States to ensure long-term continuity of supply. Mercury’s dedication to security extends across all aspects of its business, protecting its design and manufacturing records with an active cybersecurity program based on the Center for Internet Security (CIS) critical security controls.

Mercury's application engineering team is available to assist customers with the integration of BuiltSECURE DDR4 high-density secure memory devices.  For application assistance, additional information or purchase inquiries, please visit or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or
