  • Application

    The Peacock is designed to provide the ultimate video processing computer system for defense and UAV applications, as well as industrial and commercial applications. The Peacock is the next generation of the Golden-Eye III, which is widely deployed in Army WIN-T vehicles, robots for hazardous applications where the computer is exposed to harsh environments, and UAVs, where power, weight, and size are the main considerations. The SB1002-XV is ideal for outdoor applications where it may be fully exposed to rain, sun, dirt and radiation. This system may be ordered from the factory with operating systems such as Windows®, Linux® or VMware® pre-installed. The SB1002-XV is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD 1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD 461E and IP66.
  • General Description

    The SB1002-XV “Peacock” is a fifth-generation, ultra-rugged, small, lightweight video computer system with an emphasis on video processing. It is designed to support AMD's Radeon™ GPU with up to 2GB of GDDR5 SDRAM a Unified Video Decoder (UVD) 4 for H.264, VC-1, MPEG-4, and MPEG-2, and OpenCL™1.2 and DirectCompute 11.1 technology, while providing the highest level of workstation performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled, sealed system, operating from -40°C to +85°C (-20°C to +75°C standard). This system is designed for applications that require graphics engine performance above what is supported in the embedded graphics with the Intel® Chipset, in a small ultra-rugged enclosure with the highest possible graphic performance per dollar and per watt while utilizing rugged interconnects to provide a fully sealed system.
    The Peacock supports the latest, most power-efficient, Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell processor with Hyper-Threading for a total of 8 logical cores, each operating at up to 2.4GHz with the ability to TurboBoost up to 3.4GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, the CPU is coupled with up to 32GB of RAM organized in two banks that support Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides 2-bit error detection and 1-bit error correction and supports up to 1600 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) between CPU and memory. The video is generated via an AMD Radeon™ MXM module with dual, independent DisplayPorts with up to 2GB of GDDR5 SDRAM for astounding graphic performance. Other MXM modules may be deployed based on specific applications and power requirements. Additionally, two HD Video/DVI ports and one VGA port are provided via the Intel® Embedded Graphics chipset.
    The I/O subsystem for the Peacock is designed to support a wide array of standard and custom I/O functions. The SB1002-XV configuration supports up to seven Gigabit Ethernet ports with TCP/IP Offloading Engine (TOE), two USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 ports with power, up to two removable fully sealed nDrives™ of up to 1TB each which can be put in RAID 0 or 1 for performance increase or redundancy, eight buffered digital I/O lines, and up to five simultaneous video ports. Additional I/O includes dual DVI/HD Video or one DVI/HD Video and dual redundant SDI (SMPTE-259/292/424/425) (optional, lose one DVI/HD Video) outputs and one VGA video port, two COM ports with RS-232/422/485 options and a full HD-Audio headset jack and a 1-watt audio amplifier to drive an 8-ohm speaker directly. Additional I/O functions include up to 1TB of onboard SSD for OS boot with write-protect, as well as two SAM™ I/O sites for custom I/O such as Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS, Quad Video capture, CANbus, MIL-STD-1553, FireWire, etc.
    The Peacock also supports the most secure storage subsystem possible. The system supports mSATA as a boot device, as well as a dual redundant BIOS Flash with hardware write-protect and tamper-proof functions. In addition, the SB1002-XV supports two removable drives with tamper-proof security functions. A hardware tamper-proof circuit enables the security functions of the system to prevent access to any of the stored data on the system. These data security functions, along with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and the Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), make the Peacock the most secure video system on the market.
  • Technology Used

    The Peacock utilizes the Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell CPU, which is the newest and most powerful, efficient processor from Intel® with advanced thermal management and graphics. The Haswell Core™ i7 processor supports Hyper-Threading for a total of eight logical cores and supports 6MB of L2 cache shared among the cores. Haswell supports up to 32GB of DDR3 RAM with error correcting code (ECC) and 1600 mega transfers per second (MTS) between the CPU and RAM. Another major improvement of the Haswell processor over the Ivy Bridge Core™ i7 is the graphics performance. The Haswell processor provides three independent video outputs and better-than-40% improvement in 3D acceleration. Haswell is also coupled with Lynx Point™ and is a fourth-generation Core™ i7 with a fully integrated memory controller for the best memory performance possible. This CPU is considered the workhorse of the workstation market with many added power-saving features and peak performance with controlled thermals, as well as security functions such as Intel’s second-generation Virtualization Technology VT-x, Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) and Active Management Technology (AMT) for remote KVM functions. The Haswell platform also supports PCIExpress Gen3, USB 3.0 and SATA 3 for the highest performance possible on a workstation platform.
  • Cooling

    The Peacock system is equipped with GMS' patent pending RuggedCool™ technology, which is the most unique cooling system in the industry and is the only system that operates up to -40°C to +85°C at full load without throttling the CPU! This cooling approach provides the lowest thermal resistance to the case while providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The SB1002-XV is a fan-less system for reliable operation and can be mounted directly to a metal surface or used as a stand-alone system.
