The S2002-LC Crow II is an 8 to 16-core Xeon® D low cost server intended for military/defense/aerospace with greatest SWaP-Efficiency (SWaP-E) on the market due to its compact size and robust computing and I/O performance. With the onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports, Crow II is an ideal forwardly-deployed vehicle-mounted battlefield server that offers greatest reliability in the smallest packaging. Crow II can also be used in industrial and commercial platforms since it has server-class performance, exceptional I/O capabilities and removable storage. It can be mounted virtually anywhere—including on telephone poles and powered by solar panels to form an outside surveillance server or Internet-of-Things (IoT) Intelligent Gateway. The S2002-LC is fully compliant to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461E and has ingress protection up to IP66. This system may also be ordered from the factory with operating systems such as Windows® or Linux® pre-installed.
As a member of the “Server Room in a Box” family of Xeon® D-based small form factor products, the S2002-LC “Crow II” is an ultra-rugged, low cost, low profile, lightweight server system with up to 16 CPU cores and a removable drive. It is designed to provide the highest level of server performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled, sealed system, operating from -40°C to +85°C. This system architecture simplifies deployable MIL-SPEC technology by integrating processing, storage and high speed I/O in a small, ultra-rugged enclosure with the greatest possible performance per dollar and per watt.
The S2002-LC supports the latest, most power-efficient Intel® Xeon® processor D with Hyper-Threading for a total of up to 16 physical cores (32 logical cores) operating up to 1.5GHz and having the ability to Turbo Boost up to 2.1GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, the CPU is coupled with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM organized in two banks with ECC support (2-bit error detection and 1-bit error correction). All these Xeon® D cores coupled with Crow II’s I/O can be used to create multiple virtual machines (VMs) allowing a single Crow II system to replace up to 32 separate single-processor systems. Crow II is ideal for headless systems that need server-class computing, but don't need all the extra high speed I/O or graphics displays.
The I/O subsystem on the S2002-LC is designed to accommodate a wide array of standard and custom I/O functions. There are three Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports, eight buffered digital I/O lines, one RGB video port (VGA/DVI), and two Serial ports with RS-232/422/485 options. Expansion options include two SAM™ I/O sites (Special Application Module) for custom I/O such as Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS, Quad Video capture, CANbus, MIL-STD-1553, ARINC-429, and more. SAM I/O offers legacy system interfaces as well as the ability to add future upgrades.
The Crow II also offers the most secure storage subsystem possible. It supports up to 32MB BIOS Flash with hardware-write protect and secure erase. The onboard fixed M.2 boot device and removable 2.5” SATA or NVMe SSD drive provides optional hardware- write protect, Secure Erase and encryption functions. The S2002-LC can optionally support FIPS-140-2 and FIPS-197 encryption standards for ultra-secure data storage. These data security functions, along with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 and Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), make the Crow II the smallest and most secure multi-domain system on the market.
The Crow II utilizes the latest Intel® Xeon® processor D CPU, which Intel® slots between the Xeon® E3 and Xeon® E5 server processors. Xeon® processor D is ideal for microservers and embedded platforms, boasting up to 12 cores/24 threads (16 cores in commercial temperature) and advanced thermal management. The Xeon® D supports Hyper-Threading for a total of 24 logical cores (32 logical cores in commercial temperature) and supports 18MB of cache shared among the cores. The processor clocks up to 1.5GHz per core (12-core version) with Turbo Boosting up to 2.1GHz. On Crow II, the Xeon® D CPU also supports 64GB of DDR4 RAM with ECC. The Xeon® D processor is considered the most powerful per-watt server class processor on the market, with many added power-saving features. It also boasts Xeon® E5 server class RAS features like PCIe hot-plug and CMCI. Xeon® processor D also contains security functions such as Intel’s second-generation Virtualization Technology VT-x and Trusted Execution Technology (TXT). The Xeon® D platform supports PCI Express Gen3, USB 3.0 and SATA 3 for the highest performance possible on a server platform.
The Crow II system is equipped with GMS’s patent-pending RuggedCool™ technology, the industry’s most unique conduction cooling system promising system operation over -40°C to +85°C. RuggedCool™ provides the lowest thermal resistance to the case, keeping the CPU within temperature limits at full load, while still providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The S2002-LC is a stand-alone, fan-less system and should be mounted directly to a metal cold plate surface that provides a reliable conductive thermal path.
