  • Application

    The Mustang is designed to operate as a stand-alone, low-cost, rugged server with or without video output. It is ideal for heavy number-crunching applications, where data is brought via standard I/O ports such as Gigabit Ethernet, and then is processed and put on local storage devices. The Mustang is a low-cost, rugged server with vast storage offering the best SWaP on the market. It is ideal for data centers, combat and surveillance vehicles where several computers are used for data collection, targeting/mapping/DVR, and data acquisition. The SO302-LC supports the most popular Hypervisors offered by VMware®, WindRiver® and Microsoft® and may be shipped from the factory with operating systems such as Windows®, Linux® and/or VMware® pre-installed. The SO302-LC is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD 1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461E and IP66.
  • General Description

    The SO302-LC "Mustang" is a second-generation fully rugged server. It is designed to provide the highest level of server-class performance possible in a low-cost, fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled system, operating over the full -40°C to +85°C temperature (0°C to +55°C Standard).  The Mustang is targeted for applications where an ultra-fast, multi-core CPU is needed with low I/O requirements for data/image processing in a very small, low-cost package. The SO302-LC supports 10 physical CPU cores with Hyper-Threading for a total of 20 logical cores, each operating up to 2.4GHz with the ability to TurboBoost to 3.0GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, the CPU is coupled with up to 128GB of DDR3 RAM organized in four banks. Each RAM bank consists of two DDR3 DIMM arrays with Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides 2-bit error detection with 1-bit correction and supports up to 1600 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) between CPU and memory. 
    The I/O subsystem for the Mustang is designed to provide basic, low-cost I/O ports. The host CPU supports one Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, two Serial ports with RS-232/422/485 buffers, full HD-Audio, and eight General Purpose I/O lines. The SO302-LC also provides one mSATA drive with write protect for use as a local boot device up to 1TB and an optional additional up to two 2.5” SATA drives, each with up to 2TB capacity which support RAID 0 and RAID 1. For applications requiring high-performance video output, the SO302-LC provides an optional SAM™ Video module utilizing an AMD GPU (768 GFLOPS; 10 compute units) with one HD Video port and one VGA port.
  • Technology Used

    The Mustang utilizes the most powerful Xeon® processor from Intel®. The Ivy Bridge-EP CPU is a second-generation, 10-core Sandy Bridge microarchitecture processor with a fully integrated memory controller for the best possible memory performance. This CPU is the highest performance server-class CPU from Intel® with many added security functions, such as Intel’s second-generation Virtualization Technology VT-x, Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), and Converged Platform Power Management (CPPM) for thermal management and power saving. The graphics engine is based around the most powerful AMD full-size embedded MXM GPU module (768 GFLOPS; 10 compute units) for outstanding performance in 2D and 3D accelerations and can be fully virtualized. The I/O is provided via 40 lanes of PCIe 3.0 which are monitored via the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to assure full security and safe operation.
  • Cooling

    The Mustang is equipped with GMS' patent pending RuggedCool™ technology, which is the most unique cooling system in the industry and is the only server that operates up to -40°C to +85°C at full load! This cooling approach provides the lowest thermal resistance to the case while providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The SO302-LC is a stand-alone, fan-less system and should be mounted directly to a metal surface that provides a reliable conductive thermal path for dependable operation.
