Mercury Systems' Innovation Revolutionizes Microelectronics Packaging Technology for Defense Applications

New System-in-Package technology integrates security with state-of-the-art processing architectures in ultra-compact, ruggedized form factor

ANDOVER, Mass., March 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) ( today announced BuiltSECURE™ System-in-Package (SiP), a new microelectronics packaging technology designed for high-performance, SWaP-constrained defense embedded computing systems. Combining the Company's deep domain expertise in systems security engineering and three-dimensional microelectronics packaging, this innovation is ideal for platform management systems, mission management systems and command, control and intelligence applications.

Mercury Systems' new BuiltSECURE System-in-Package (SIP)
  Mercury Systems' new BuiltSECURE System-in-Package (SIP) technology integrates security with state-of-the-art processing architectures in an ultra-compact, ruggedized form factor.


"Our BuiltSECURE SiP solutions are capable of providing the same security of long-lead application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) at a fraction of the typical cost and schedule," said Scott Orton, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury's Trusted Mission Solutions group. "This is exactly what our customers are asking for in secure processing solutions."

Mercury's new BuiltSECURE SiP technology addresses the most complex, multi-faceted challenges for the defense industry today with a single, highly ruggedized ball grid array (BGA) package:

  • Agile customization: An accelerated time to market is achieved with the rapid prototyping of the optimal processing solution including microprocessors, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, memory modules, sensor components and security features for each unique program.
  • Advanced thermal management: Sophisticated design tools enable each device to dissipate more than 100W of power to meet the processing demands of modern processors and FPGA devices.
  • Embedded Security: Integrated secure boot capability is complemented with optional personalized security solutions to detect and mitigate adversarial non-invasive attacks.
  • Trusted design and manufacturing: BuiltSECURE SiP devices, like all of Mercury's digital microelectronics solutions, are designed and manufactured in a DMEA-accredited facility protected by a vigilant cybersecurity program.

"The pace of evolution in the modern threat environment demands a paradigm shift in microelectronics design and packaging technologies," said Charlie Leader, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mercury's Advanced Microelectronics Solutions group. "Our valued customers now have access to a trusted supply of highly integrated processing modules without sacrificing security, performance, SWaP or affordability. We are honored to support our warfighters around the globe with agile, best-of-breed microelectronics technology powered by our next-generation business model."

Mercury's dedication to all aspects of industrial security extends far beyond product design and into the cadence of its daily operations. The Company's entire portfolio of advanced digital microelectronic solutions are designed and manufactured in a Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA)-accredited facility for design, packaging, test and broker services. Several of Mercury's facilities have been recognized for excellence by receiving a Superior rating from the Defense Security Service (DSS).

Mercury's application engineering team is available to assist customers with the integration of BuiltSECURE technology into highly specialized application environments. The Company has also published a white paper, available for download at, to provide customers with more detailed background information. For application assistance, additional product information or purchase inquiries, customers can visit or contact Mercury at or (866) 627-6951.
