  • Application

    The Scorpion is designed to operate as a stand-alone server with or without video input. It is ideal for heavy number-crunching applications where data is brought via ultra-high-speed I/O ports, such as 10Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 devices.  The Scorpion is a low-profile server at only 1.75 inches, thus offering the best SWaP on the market. It is ideal for combat and surveillance vehicles where several computers are used for data collection, targeting/mapping, and data acquisition. The SO302-LP 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-LP is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD 1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD 461E and IP66.
  • General Description

    The SO302-LP "Scorpion" is a second-generation, fully rugged, low-profile server. It is designed to provide the highest level of server-class performance possible in the lowest-profile, fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled, operating from -40°C to +85°C temperature (-20°C to +75°C Standard).  The Scorpion is targeted for applications where an ultra-fast, multi-core CPU is needed with vast amounts of ultra-high-speed, ECC-protected RAM for data processing in a very small package with dual redundant systems and an optional video configuration. The SO302-LP supports 10 physical CPU cores with Hyper-Threading for a total of 20 logical cores, each operating at up to 2.4GHz with the ability to TurboBoost up 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 Scorpion is designed to support the widest array of ultra-high-speed I/O devices with modularity and security. The host CPU supports dual 10Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports with power, two Serial ports with RS-232/422/485 buffers, full HD-Audio, and eight General Purpose I/O lines. The SO302-LP provides one mSATA drive with write-protect for use as a local boot device up to 1TB. The Scorpion also supports a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) for detailed system health monitoring and reporting using industry standard IPMI 2.0 via a dedicated Ethernet port or serial port. For applications requiring high-performance video output, the SO302-LP provides an optional SAM™ Video module, utilizing the most powerful AMD GPU with dual Display Port or HD Video ports and one VGA port.
  • Technology Used

    The Scorpion 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 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 Scorpion is equipped with GMS' patent pending RuggedCool™ technology, which is the most unique cooling system in the industry and is the only server that can operate 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-LP 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.
