Mercury Systems Launches Built-in-Test Platform for System-Wide Fault Detection

Mercury Systems

ANDOVER, Mass. - Sept. 21, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the launch of its Diagnostic Support Tools (DST) software suite, which provides the capabilities required for customers to build a robust subsystem Built-In-Test (BIT) for system integrity during system boot and application execution. Compatible with Mercury’s BuiltSECURE™ infrastructure, DST provides comprehensive, non-intrusive fault detection across processor boards, graphics cards, I/O modules, networks, backplanes, operating systems, and applications.

The DST suite delivers an extensible platform for all three stages of BIT operation: Power-on BIT (PBIT), Continuous BIT (CBIT), and operator Initiated BIT (IBIT). PBIT support includes tailored tests of Mercury’s hardware built-in self-test (BIST) results and software bring-up. CBIT supports continuous testing with a high level of test coverage due to the low-overhead implementation, and is tunable depending on the hardware and software requirements. IBIT supports running full diagnostics during application execution or while in a halted state for debugging or triggered events.

“Mercury’s Diagnostic Support Tools enable defense system integrators to save up to thousands of hours of developer time compared to developing their Built-In-Test software,” said Shaun McQuaid, Director of Product Management. “Using DST to build applications that can monitor system health and functionality increases the reliability, predictability, and security of an application.”

DST is delivered as a suite of tools that use a customizable script format to access any information required to detect faults in the multicomputer subsystem. The tools utilize Mercury software and firmware capabilities, along with Linux’s system tools to provide an accessible and actionable output of results. DST can be used to create BIT reports in minutes with a simple configuration file. DST complements Mercury’s system management platform based on ANSA/VITA 46.11 to provide a comprehensive, system-wide set of management, monitoring, and diagnostic tools.

DST is available for Ensemble® Series 3U and 6U OpenVPX™ and ATCA modules and subsystems running Linux OS with at least one Intel-based processor card and PCI Express®, Ethernet, InfiniBand™, or RapidIO® connectivity.
