Secure electronic warfare systems should never require compromise — or be compromised. When a leading A&D industry company needed to upgrade three mission-critical EW systems, they found themselves connected with silicon tech solutions beyond their own industry.
The most advanced microelectronics technology is critical for the aerospace and defense industry. For this customer, that meant state-of-the-art heterogeneous processing.
Too Big, Too Complex, and Too Many Variables
A leader in the A&D industry was using individual, custom-designed modules in each of their three EW systems, requiring multiple RF and data processing cards. They needed to create a significantly smaller and standardized EW architecture for a range of spectrum processing subsystems without sacrificing security, performance, and reliability. For this one design to support multiple applications, a new level of broadband performance with trust and security not typically found in the commercial semiconductor sector was required
