Mercury Computer Systems, CommAgility reach strategic agreement
Mercury Computer Systems, Inc, a trusted ISR application-ready subsystems (ARS) provider, and CommAgility announced that they have reached a strategic agreement enabling Mercury to leverage market-leading technology to develop best-in-class application-ready subsystems for commercial and military communications, and wireless infrastructure systems. This agreement will allow Mercury to incorporate CommAgility and jointly-developed products into its existing platforms and to quickly generate new solutions that exploit the latest Texas Instruments' (TI) Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, providing customers with a competitive advantage as they address a range of communications challenges including the progression from Long Term Evolution (LTE) to the LTE Advanced standard.
"CommAgility's history of developing embedded signal processing and TI DSP-based products closely aligns with our expertise in signal processing and high-bandwidth data plane subsystem integration strategy," said Didier Thibaud, senior vice president and general manager of Mercury Computer Systems' Advanced Computing Solutions business unit. "This collaborative relationship reflects Mercury's long-standing commitment to deliver new technology and unique application value to our customers."
The agreement combines the strengths of both companies - Mercury's leadership in high performance signal and image processing and open, ARS solutions - with CommAgility's leadership in the embedded DSP board industry.
"Mercury has demonstrated an unrivaled ability to deliver customized, integrated platform solutions that leverage best-of-breed technology to optimize performance and value, and these are a natural fit with our high-performance DSP and FPGA board-level products." said Edward Young, managing director at CommAgility. "We are proud to work with Mercury to provide their customers with access to the DSP technology needed for advanced communications applications."
