Mercury Computer Systems RACE MCJ9 Motherboard

The RACE++™ MCJ motherboards are Mercury's crossbar-connected carrier boards for RACE++ and RACE™ 1.0 daughtercards in VME systems. These motherboards are used in conjunction with RACE++ Interlink backplane overlays and RACE++ compatible daughtercards containing processors, memory, and I/O to provide compute power for a scalable, high-performance embedded computer system.

• 66-MHz RACE++ Switched Interconnect
• Crossbar-Connected on Board and Between Boards
• Dual-port ready for two RACE++ ports

Part Number: 910-08018, 910-08166

Daughtercards sold separately

Mercury Computer Systems RACE Series MultiPort Systems

  • High-End DSP System Platform
  • Multiple Systems Scale With RACEway Interconnect
  • Support For Hundreds of SHARCs and PowerPCs


The RACE switched-fabric architecture, unlike a bus-based computer, is designed for efficiency by allowing multiple, concurrent transactions so that processor and I/O device performance are not degraded because of data starvation. Concurrent transactions also provide the simultaneous input, output, and computing that is needed by applications driven by real-time sensor acquisition and display. Mercury's motherboards, which offer a wide range of configurability and expandability, provide the gateway for RACEway.

The upshot of Mercury's high standards for design and manufacturing is that the environmental specifications for RACE commercial products exceed those required for many rugged-environment applications.

The MCH Series motherboards consist of the MCH6 and MCH9, which are 6U and 9U form factors, respectively, and have VME64 and RACEway interfaces. Mercury's RACE MCV Series motherboards can be combined with the MCH Series motherboards, allowing i860, SHARC, and PowerPC processors to be used in the same system (i860 processors are supported only by MCV Series motherboards).

The MCJ Series motherboards are available in 6U and 9U form factors, MCJ motherboards can be used with VME backplanes equipped with either single or dual-port RACE++ interlink modules attached to the VME P2/J2 backplane

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
